When I converted to Christianity, things became so tough and so rough that I nearly gave up. I packed all my things and left my uncle’s place. (I’ll discuss this matter in another series). No believer was willing and ready to accept me, not even pastors.
We all need to be SELFLESS. The good Samaritan left his business trip to attend to a stranger. Jesus came for the ordinary person, the poor, the weak and the destitute.
In this era of social exclusion, people are ready to do anything to protect only their interest. Recently, I went to a nearby village as part of my community outreach. A young lady who had asthmatic attack was rushed to the clinic (name of village withheld) battling for her life lying at the OPD, and nobody seem to care. The nurses claim they don’t have oxygen, but at least, someone should have been attending to her. Good neighbours give attention to others. We have been purified by our obedience to the truth. Let us show SINCERE love for each other from a pure heart. (1 Peter 1:22). Ephesians 4:32 compels us to be kind and compassionate to one another; forgiving one another Just as God also forgave us in Christ Jesus.
Do you know someone who is hurting? Someone at the verge of giving up? Your first responsibility is to prove the love of Christ by coming to his or her aid. It is easy to stand afar and claim to be religious, but your true Christianity is seen in the care you give to others; the sick, the widow, the orphan and the destitute in the street.
Many people have left the church room because they have been judged, vilified, condemned and mocked. A single word of encouragement can motivate a person to give his or her life to Christ.
Stay blessed always and remember to love someone and mean it.
