In the Gospel of Luke, the 70 disciples whom Jesus sent out on mission return to Him full of joy. God’s plan has unfolded in them, and the promise of Jesus is fulfilled. Their generosity manifests gratitude.
When I fulfill God’s plan for me, what He wants to accomplish comes to pass. Fulfillment is expressed in thanksgiving for who God is and for how I fit in His plan.
Dear Jesus, may I do what You ask of me today. When I fulfill your mission, may my gratitude make discipleship attractive to others.
