“When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.” Romans 12:13 NLT
The Church should always be more than a building; it should be about people sharing and giving their lives to each other. The Church should always be more than a pastor preaching on a Sunday; it should be about the body of Christ living out their faith every other day of the week in their community. Worship should be more than singing on Sundays; it should be our lives poured out for each other and for those who don’t know the Lord. Tithing should always be more than giving money on Sunday; it should be about helping each other out when there is a need.
We are the people of God. As some would say, we are the hands and feet of God. If that is true, then why aren’t His hands serving and healing? Why aren’t his feet spreading the good news of the gospel not only to unbelievers but also to each other?
Faith in Christ should always be more than just getting into Heaven; it should be about sacrificing ourselves for each other and for the gospel, knowing that He will give us the strength to do so.
Spend a minute with the Lord asking Him to show you how to truly live out being His hands and feet in your daily life and community. Ask Him to bring to mind some people who are in need. Write their names down. Pray for them. Why not ask the Lord how you can help them specifically. Now go love each other.
