3 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, 4 always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. 6 And I am sure
of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. 7 It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, [d] both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the
gospel. 8 For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. 9 And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, 10 so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
Reading social media today I saw where a friend and business associate of H2T posted, and I paraphrase, “a room in my heart for you”. This sent me on a Word search, only to find where Paul told his Partners “I hold you in my heart”. He later in the passage writes, “I yearn for
you all with the affection of Christ Jesus.” What a great picture of holding someone in your heart by creating a room for them.
When we fill our hearts with the Love of God, He makes room for our love to grow so we can add others. As Paul wrote, while in prison, “It is right for me to feel this way.” As a team we hold a place in our hearts, for our partners, our missionaries, and our churches. There is also
room individually for our families, our neighbors, and yes those that may not agree with us.
We at Here2There come together at a minimum 2 times weekly to pray. We make room in our hearts for you. We make room in our hearts for our neighbors. We make room in our hearts for others. Today I encourage you to not harden your heart to others, but make room in
your heart for Jesus, so He can make room for us and others, as we make room for you.
