God is Love – Lana Ellis

Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.-  1 John 4:7-8:  

When I was 13 my Daddy was diagnosed with cancer.  A short six months later, my Mother was diagnosed with cancer.  Our life changed fast.  I had always sat with Daddy in church.  He would explain why we were taking communion.  I was very fortunate to spend so much time with him.  After he passed away, my emotions were going in a lot of directions.  Sad, depressed, lonely, hurt, but I remember my mother saying, “God takes the really good people first!”  Well, that planted a seed!  Thank you, Jesus for moms and dads!

Christ remains in us through the Holy Spirit.” We place our total trust in Him and rely on Him for guidance and strength.  Christ is the Vine and we, His followers, are the branches. - 1 John 2:27

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God. - 1 John 3:1-2

Later in my life, I connected with Merle Philips, the man who had brought communion to our home as my parents were so ill.  Today, I visit Merle in the nursing home.  Another important friend and mentor to me as I matured in my Christian life was Rev. Don Johnson.  I helped him with a nursing home ministry.  Don was also my Sunday School teacher.  I cannot express my gratitude to these men as they showed the true meaning of being a Christian.  I still call Don just to say hi or ask advice for this or that!

Communion is very special to me for many reasons, but most of all, knowing Jesus gave His life for you and me.  When I take the bread (His body broken for us) and drink of the cup (His blood shed for us), I remember His life was for you and for me!

And this is the boldness we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have obtained the requests made of him. - 1 John 5:14-15

Our loving, Father, we thank you for all of our blessings, so many we can’t even count them all!  Guide us to come to you more often.  As we continue to grow in our Christian life, help us to reach out to others and to tell your story every chance we get!  Thank you, Father, for your love and your mercy.  In Jesus name, we pray.  Amen.
