Greetings Home Group Shepherds,

Diane and I are reading through the Bible together. One of the repeated motifs is that God wants to bless us, to pour His love and power into our lives. The repeated cycle in the Bible is that God blesses, people enjoy the blessings and then turn from God to worship the gift rather than the giver. When they are desperate, they cry out to God for mercy and the cycle begins again.

There is, though, one gift that we can worship that actually leads to further blessing. The greatest gift of gifts is that God gave us Himself. Jesus gave Himself, the Holy Spirit indwells, and the Father attends to our every prayer. This is why He made us – that we might enter into a relationship with Him and be blessed beyond all other blessings.

Let’s break the cycle together. Let’s lead our groups into the worship of the giver.
