Greetings in the name of the Lord.

It is interesting to watch the development of a young child. There is a period of time around 2 years old and sometimes again around 4 when the child’s favorite word is ‘no.’ Even if you are asking about something they would like, such as a cookie, the answer will be no. It is only as they grow that they learn the joy of the word ‘yes.’ It opens up new possibilities to them.

In the same way, our Christian growth follows a similar pathway. As we start our journey together with God our first answer to His call to action is usually no. It is only as we grow in faith that we come to realize the joy of “yes.” All kinds of joyous experience await us when we learn to say yes to God. Look for times when God is asking you to do something or try something new and be ready to say ‘yes.’

May God’s love and grace be with you this week.

See you in church.
