So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Jesus wants us to love one another. He came to teach that God is good. He set an example of how we are to live our lives with a heart of compassion and awareness of those who need to know the power of His greatness. He wants us to experience how it feels to share His love.
Sometimes we don’t notice the needs of others. We become busy in the managing of our days. But God wants us to slow down and take time to feel the strength of His presence. He wants us to experience what happens when we care for those He loves and witness the joy of giving...
When we welcome the love of the Savior, God readies us to receive abundant JOY. He slows us down to clearly see the heart of those who need to be reminded God IS with us. The Bible says, “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience."
We won't always understand how God will use us to help others, but He will reveal what needs to be done to share the love of Christ. God will bless us and make a way for us to be guided by the power of His love.
We must LOVE, ENCOURAGE and continue to build each other up. The kindness and compassion we share will not go unnoticed. God will use us to reach others as we help them witness the love of His faithfulness. If we respond to the needs of those around us, we will find JOY in simply giving... And the blessings we share will be given back to us, when we open our hearts and choose to make a difference.
Dear God, Thank you for the love of Your faithfulness. Open our eyes for what will be happen when we find peace in the presence of Your love. Help us become "instruments of Your peace" as we learn to encourage and respond to those around us. We will love you all of our days and patiently wait to witness the power of Your greatness in our lives and the lives of those around us. Thank you for helping us remember; when we take time to care about others, we are honoring YOU. Thank you Lord. Thank you! Amen
