I really like the song “They will know we are Christians by our Love” and at Sunday’s church service it was one of the worship songs…
Please listen to it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CobNWUXb1M
The sermon was about Refugees but some of the Scripture that Shaun shared really fit this topic. I have been writing allot lately about ministering to the one that is in front of you – it is the only way we are to make an impact in this world.
The verses from Matthew 25: 35 & 36 are a key to how we show this:
For I was hungry and you gave Me food to eat. I was thirsty and you gave Me water to drink. I was a stranger and you gave Me a room. I had no clothes and you gave Me clothes to wear. I was sick and you cared for Me. I was in prison and you came to see Me.’
Followed by this Verse: Hebrews 13: 2
Do not forget to be kind to strangers and let them stay in your home. Some people have had angels in their homes without knowing it.
How many times have we passed up the opportunity to Bless someone and came up with a really good reason why we did not do it. I have been in that spot and reasoned it with:
- I do not have time.
- Someone else will help them.
- I am not qualified.
- They really do not look like they need help.
As the scripture above stated – we may have just failed to bless an Angel. Our response should be in Obedience when we come across an opportunity to Bless someone and not to question as to “Why Not”. I have been getting better at looking for those opportunities to Bless someone… and if it is an Angel – it would be one of those WOW moments. It is something that does not come easy for me, but I make an effort and practice being the Christian they will know by my Love. **The Second most important commandment is: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
So this week – look for those opportunities to Bless the person in front of you… Practice and be obedient – it just might be an Angel.
“They will know we are Christians by our Love!”
