Go Beyond the Box of Caring

I feel the Love of God wanting so much to break through in our understandings, to go beyond, break through the everyday box of what we think of perhaps as Christianity.

Be filled with the Holy Spirit and filled with His love and then pour out into lives that very life of Jesus Christ that is a River.

That goes out of the way to go to people that they would know that He cares.

I think of missions trips and they are wonderful. And caring for people at home, it is wonderful.

But I think of us that are taking the trips or visiting others, perhaps without us even realizing it that we need to arm ourselves with the mind that is in our Lord to think of people more highly than we do even of our selves.

To see outreach locally, or in missions, not as the form, but as the life of God through Jesus being extended in love to others to let them know their lives are so important. To visit them. That is up close and personal.

We are vessels to take a relationship and way of life from Jesus Christ, to everyone.

To show them the Love of Jesus Christ for them. To be vessels to express His love.

Him. To them.

To get down and get dirty.

And by that I mean to get down among the people, find ways to get into the lives of others that are in need of Jesus' touch of Love, and become a part of their lives.

If we are too religious to understand that our Christian walk is about getting down and getting dirty in the lives of others, then we are not letting Christ's life go out to others that they might find New Life in Him in the fullness we could see that happen.

That is what our llives are all about.

That others might know Jesus.

Taking Jesus' life to others, we're vessels, that they might know Him.

What He has given, to give in return, to others.

Have we been set free? To set others free in His Name. Have we found Love like we never knew existed? In Jesus.

To give to others who do not know this Love of Jesus, the Love of God.

That Love of our Lord, Him, loving us, in such a way it is so Wonderful and He cares about us and will never leave us or forsake us.

Do we love? Do I love? I need to love more.

The gramma, the criminal, the child, the neglected, those with lack of social grace or the appearance of social graces or skills.
The homeless, the neighbor. The unfriendly person, the sad person, the rejected person. Everyone.

The person who is involved in things that we don't think of. Those doing what we don't want them to do. To pray for them.

Whoever.

Do I feed the hungry spiritually and physically? To get down and get dirty is to serve others in the love of Jesus. To love them, to feed them, to care about their lives as part of our own.

To get down on another's level, to sit down low and wipe their feet with our tears.

Compassion from Jesus for the wounds of life.

Their lives wiped with the compassion of Christ in us.

This is a Happy Day!

To love others as our self because Jesus first loved us. To have that opportunity still, today is a happy Day!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
