I love this verse in The Message too. One of the neatest things to do when studying the Word is to pop open different translations. Here it is:
Just think—you don’t need a thing, you’ve got it all! All God’s gifts are right in front of you as you wait expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive on the scene for the Finale. And not only that, but God himself is right alongside to keep you steady and on track until things are all wrapped up by Jesus. God, who got you started in this spiritual adventure, shares with us the life of his Son and our Master Jesus. He will never give up on you. Never forget that.
Oh. I just love that! Don't you? We've got it all--NEVER forget that! But the part that gets me the most giddy (yes, giddy!) is the picture of our Jesus, arriving on scene for the Grand Finale! This Pentecostal girl may just start shouting some Hallelujahs right now!
Praying you all have an amazing week in this your adventure with God:) I'll be taking a blogging break until next Wednesday the 29th. Have a great Holiday weekend with your friends and family!
