Commentary By: Gordon King
Hello all, may the Lord be with you in truth, love, kindness, peace, forgiveness and mercy. Amen
The world is a tough place, with all of the violence, crime, economic turmoil, disaster, and just the day-to-day survival can be extremely difficult for some of us. Most of us have something in our lives that is troubling us. Something that causes the depths of our soul to cry out to the Lord in pain and suffering.
As Christians, we are to reach out to others in the world. To aide others with help, giving, comfort, and peace. To assist those in need, those who are suffering. That is what God has commanded of us as his followers, as Christians.
Most of us are unaware of what someone else is going through in their life. More than likely, they are in need of something. Whether that be a financial need, comforting, food, or just someone to listen to them. Maybe they just need someone to tell them that they love them. Maybe they just need a hug.
When was the last time you had someone tell you that they love you? When was the last time a stranger told you that he loved you and cared about you? Never? Well, I love you! I care about you. You are special. Maybe not to anyone else, but, to God you are so very precious. He loves you dearly.
As Christians we need to reach out to those around us in love, kindness, forgiveness and mercy. We need to lend a helping hand. We need to give to them as we can, out of love, from our hearts. This is what Jesus would do. This is what Jesus expects of us.
It’s not that difficult to do, and is needed so much today in our society. Tell someone that you love them and care about them. Let them know that you are here for them if they are in need. Listen to them, and share your experiences with them. You never know when you will plant a seed or lead someone to Christ.
People are in pain, people are suffering, they are lonely and afraid. This is the truth. The need is out there, the need is great. Let us not be afraid ourselves, to step out in faith and share our love with others in need. This is the greatest thing of all, Love. Remember, God is Love.
I pray for God to spread his love, peace and truth around the world. I pray for revival in the land. I pray for the softening of hearts, the removal of scales from eyes, and the salvation of the lost. Amen
God Bless my friends. May the Spirit of the Lord come upon you in peace, love, kindness, mercy, forgiveness, comfort and help.
