Grace and peace today Dear Hearts
These words from 1 Thess. 5:17 in the Passion Translation caught my imagination this morning,
“MAKE YOUR LIFE A PRAYER!”
The footnotes say, “1 Thessalonians 5 Verses 16–18 identify three areas our lives we must focus on: (1) unbounded joy, (2) praying continually, and (3) giving thanks to God no matter happens in our lives. These three virtues combine to form the wonderful expression of Christ’s life within us.”
I LOVE the thought. The New Life Version puts it this way, “16 Be full of joy all the time. 17 Never stop praying. 18 In everything give thanks. This is what God wants you to do because of Christ Jesus.
