I don’t have a lot to say in this post, but today I am thankful for the encouraging words and prayers of a friend. It is strange that we curl up with our phones, TV’s, computers, and e-readers so easily, and in the process keep ourselves from the living, breathing body of Christ.

Our interaction with other believers is the way Jesus touches us with hands that can be felt and words that can be heard with our ears and not just our hearts.

In 1 John 1:1,3, the apostle writes, “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life….That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you.”

Since the days of John, Jesus has been passing on His touch through His people. When we decide to encourage, pray for, or cry with another believer, we are like a living letter of love from the Savior.

I’d like to share a song with you that has always blessed me. I trust it will bless you as well.
