Reach Out to Them.

LET CHRIST'S LOVE SHINE

But the stranger who resides with you shall be to you like someone native born among you; and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 19:34 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

They are everywhere, especially in todays electronic society, lonely people.

We as Christians are to reach out to them. It is the perfect opportunity to share explaining to them the prospect of being blessed with a loving relationship with He who is the best friend one could ever have and a loving relationship of which no other can compare.

Before adventuring out for the day may I suggest you ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to someone who needs compassion.

Trust, me , when you sincerely ask of Him, He will guide you to just the right soul.

May I suggest you take a course in how to approach others and how to listen to them. As well, it is advisable to carry around a list of services available to help them if need be. So, say for example say someone is lonely, why not find out their interests and help them find a club to join, especially a Christian one.

“We need to care less about whether our children are academically gifted & more about whether they sit with the lonely kid in the cafeteria.” unknown

Now discretion is required because of dangerous places and folks. Do not approach a junkie when they are high or someone who is so angry looking they look like they are ready to explode.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me with the guidance of the Holy Spirit to guide me to those with open lonely hearts unto Your most awesome love. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of He whose love for the lost took Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Are You a Stranger to Them?

Image

I have become a stranger to my brothers, And an alien to my mother’s children. Psalm 69:8New King James Version                                                                                      

When you become close friends many times you regard yourselves as brothers or sisters.

When you become a Christian you do not fit in with the old crowd. Your likes and dislikes change. Soon you become like a stranger to the old crowd. Many times they will become your most difficult adversaries. It will become difficult to walk away from them because you were so close but now you belong to the Christian brother and sisterhood.

That does not mean you cannot enjoy friendship with unbelievers. It means that many times you will have to walk away from friendships that were at one time very close. 

 

Have you ever lived in another country where they have different cultures, customs and languages? Many times they look at you and think you are crazy because you do things differently than they do. Why do you not do the things we do (after living in China for about ten years I experienced a lot of this) will be a common mantra.                                        

The same will occur with your biological family.                                                                    

They will see the change in you and cannot figure out why you have changed. Many times they will become hostile to the changes and indeed you will find yourself ostracized from family get togethers.                                                                                             

It will be painful but just remember, now you are a member of a Holy family. What is taken away from you in the world Jehovah will more than replace in His divine family. That does not mean it will be a family where everybody holds hands and sings Jesus loves me. There is always problems in every family, including the Christian one.          

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yehew (God of His people) for the wonderful blessing of adopting me into Your precious holy family. Please heal the wounds that are caused by separation from those with whom I was once close with but they have distanced themselves from me since becoming one of Your righteous children. I gratefully offer this prayer in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                   

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
