I just got back from a birthday party that turned into a prayer and worship meeting.
It’s no surprise because my friend Kristin has a heart that beats for worship, for Jesus.
There’s nothing like coming together as one in worship.
It was hard to leave the house. We were all so filled with the joy of the Lord. Our cups were running over!
I’ve never been to a birthday party quite like this one. Something Kristin said is stuck in my mind:
This party is not really about me–it’s all about Jesus.
Colossians 3:3 says, “For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”
As Christians, we understand that our lives are not really our lives. We are dead! It’s Christ who lives and operates through us.
Every moment of every day is to be lived in surrender (even on your birthday).
This night of celebration was beautiful. Fellowship, friends, and worship are 3 things that go together well–whether it’s a birthday party or a church service.
I am thankful for Kristin and I know that her 19th year will be awesome.
