Visitation as a Means of Grace

In preparation for Christmas Eve, I spent the afternoon visiting the sick and shut-in. I hope it was good for them, it was certainly good for me. There is a reason John Wesley included visitation among the means of grace—in my experience it is one of the most effective ways the Holy Spirit works to convey God’s love to us. If you haven’t done so already I would encourage you to “adopt” a shut-in and visit them regularly. If you don’t know any, I would be happy to introduce you.
