Make me a channel of Your peace

Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Phil. 2:1

Sometimes God answers these questions with a divine, spine-tingling sense of His presence but often, probably most of the time, He gives us each other to provide encouragement, comfort, and a sense of belonging. He pours His own tenderness and compassion into us and inspires us to respond to others who need that same tenderness and compassion. After hanging out with me I want people to be able to check “yes.”

Lord, help me to be sensitive to others and to Your Spirit’s response to them.
