Jesus loves them this we know, but do their fellow man? Women and children are precious in the eyes of God and cared for by Jesus Christ. Yet in this world there are women and children who fear for their well-being, for their safety, for their very lives. Imagine a life of bondage, a life that is stolen from you and no longer your own. Daily the lives of women and children are impacted by poverty, reduced to prostitution and sold into slavery. Sex trafficking is real, it exists, it breaks God's heart and it should break ours. Jesus came to set us free from bondage and to give us an abundant life; a life for many women which seems out of reach, unattainable, an aching longing. There are women today, right now, fearful and terrified for their lives, victims of trafficking and violence. Yes, Jesus loves them, yet in this world these women live in fear.
Who will be the hands and feet of Jesus for these women and children? Who will care for, provide for and protect them? As we read and pray and study God’s Word we must come to the crossroads where our biblical knowledge meets the practicality of service to God in the saving of His people. For those women and children who are abused and living a dejected life, each day they wait at the well in the hope of meeting Jesus.
Christians long for the glorious day when we will meet our Lord, yet we live day to day as if we are unaware that He walks among us. It is when we meet the needs of the tired, the poor, the hungry, the persecuted, the victimized that we meet Jesus; for when we do for the least of them we serve our Lord. Where then can the least of these be found? The women and children who are at risk can be found around the world, they need safety, health care, education and living needs. They are the women at the well where Jesus sat and talked and offered living water. They can still be found today for those who will seek them.
Do you have a heart to serve the Lord and long to put your faith into action? Do you have a desire to be a Christian not only in word but also in deed? As we pray to be made more like Jesus may we pick up our heads, open our eyes and see the women and children of God; they are in need, they need me and they need you.
