Worthy News Brief - January 24, 2020
Friend, start building!
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
The word for builder in Hebrew is “bo-neh”. It is also translated repairer. When our Messiah came 2000 years ago, He came to repair lives -- to do a complete restoration of all that is broken in this world.
Interestingly, the Hebrew words for son, “ben” and daughter, “baht” both also come from the word bo-neh! So -- if you were wondering what God’s calling on your life is, here you have it! We, as sons and daughters, are called to repair and build up our families, the body of Messiah and the world around us.
Friend, let's begin looking for opportunities to bless those around us! Let's seek to be the ones to repair broken hearts, lives and relationships. In this way, we will truly become sons and daughters of God!
Your family in the Lord with much agape love,
George, Baht Rivka, Elianna & Obadiah
Albuquerque, New Mexico
