For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45
Why did this happen to me God? How can you allow this to happen to me God? These are typical responses we lash out at God when tragedy strikes. But we need to understand we are the hands and feet of God.
If you are a Christian, then Jesus is living thru you. Therefore God should be living thru you, you should be doing the will of God.
(Romans 8:11) But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Is this easy? Of course not, God never said it was going to be easy but if we trust in him all things are possible. How can I possibly make a difference? Let’s reflect on the story of Exodus. 400 years the Isrealites were trapped in slavery only to be freed my Moses. Did Moses do this alone? Of course not God sent the plaques, parted the Red Sea, ect. but he used Moses as his “hands and feet.
(Mark 10:27)” “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
Where do we begin? How do we save the world? One person at a time. Remember charity begins at home. Take care of your family, take care of your friends, take care of your neighbors, take care of your community. If every did this we wouldn’t have anymore problems.
Would there be any homeless if every family took care of each other? God has put you where you are for a purpose. Your family, your neighbors, your community, are tied to you for a reason. People travel far looking for mission trips but your mission is right where you are. Let Jesus live thru you and server your family, friends, neighbors, and community. Be a blessing to them.
(Jeremiah 29:7) Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”
I pray that thru Jesus we are able to save and serve our families, friends, neighbors, enemies, community in Jesus name Amen
