8th Day of Christmas – The Gift of Invitation

(I’m following these prompts for the 12 Days of Christmas)

Philippians 1:3-8

I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart and, whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God’s grace with me. God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.

An old family picture from a gathering at least 15 years ago. Papa is the only one who is gone, and we’ve added husbands and wives and several children.  I say with Paul “God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.”
