The Burden of Love

No matter where we find ourselves, as children of the Light, we sometimes feel the outcast in the group be it at the workplace, at school, at a club or association. We come into contact with different people with all sorts of ideologies and entrenched doctrines that sometimes you wonder how possible it is that we all live on this planet earth. There are some people who obviously relish in the ability to provoke others and others who value the very things you utterly despise. But as a child of God, should we shun them and leave them to perish?

I know it’s not easy to reach out to people who seem comfortable in their present state-not knowing God and caring less about following Him. It sometimes gets confusing about finding the balance between not getting “unequally yoked with unbelievers” and “seeking the lost and snatching them out of sin”. Someone may ask, how can we seek them without associating with them?

It’s all a matter of purpose. Some people associate with others so that their fame and other social benefits could rub off on them. But others reach out to others because of the genuine love they have for their souls to be saved. As humans as we are, we all have some pride in us, to prove our worth to others: that we know what is right and so we won’t associate with the “ignorant” ones who think they are living ‘the life’. How much will it take for us to get down our high horses and help the lost?

Obviously, we can’t do it on our own. It takes the grace of God to love the ones who ridicule and provoke us enough to share the love of God with them. We need to have the burden of love powerful enough to look beyond their flaws and our personal prejudices against them and draw them closer to God.

Time is running out, folks….everything testifies that the Lord’s second coming is as near as ever….why not put aside all human sentiments and participate in the Lord’s harvest? You know the laborers are few… A glorious crown awaits you!

Have a blessed day, folks!


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