The Heart of Jesus

Let’s read the scriptures:

“”For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’” 
[Matthew 25:35-40]

Say this prayer with me;

‘Lord Jesus,
Enable me to truly Love like You, Help like You, Teach like You and Serve like You. 
Give me Your heart Lord Jesus; a heart for the people, a heart for my neighbours; for my brothers and sisters. 
Help me to show and feel a genuine and true love towards everyone I come across, and give me the courage to reach out, and spread Your love to those whom I don’t know personally. 
Help me Lord Jesus to see You in each individual, and show them mercy, kindness and warmth, at all times. 
In Your precious name I pray, 
Amen.’

Friends, we have a role.
We have an important part to play as the body of Christ on earth.
Not only do we have a duty to look after those nearest and dearest to us, but we must also reach out to those in our communities, in the world around us – near or far, and share a piece of Jesus with them.

It’s time for us to look for a way to make a difference in society, and let the world begin to experience the love of God through our selfless actions.
It isn’t for us to gloat or boast or be proud, but it is for us to truly make this world a better place, and do these things as though they were unto Jesus.

Join me today in creating a Compassion Plan (CP); (your own personal way of extending a hand of love to those who are less fortunate).
Here are the steps:

  1. Seek out someone to help – it could be an individual, a group of people, or an organisation (choose whoever you want, but make sure it’s a worthy cause and that you are able to share the Love of God actively)
  2. Identify how you can help them in a meaningful way
  3. Pray for God to enable you and show you what to do
  4. Decide and set up a way that you will help
  5. Tell someone else, for accountability
  6. Do it and Commit to it! And encourage friends and family to join you (or even create their own CP).

Remember that we aren’t limited to giving just money, but also prayer, time, and many other good things too.
I pray that God will enable us all to take up the roles that He has created for us from the beginning of time, and that we will fill in the gaps that exist, with our acts of love and service.
Let’s be excited to care for the world around us.

On this earth, let us be the hands and feet of Jesus.

Keep the Faith, Don’t Stop Believing
God Bless you.
