When the disciples got that full strength dose of the Spirit on Pentecost, the Lord had a mission in mind...bring the good news to the ends of the earth! When we live the way Jesus taught us, people around us will notice. You could be the example that makes it real for someone else, the bridge to their own salvation. What an opportunity to have!
What a friend we have in Jesus! Friends love each other, look out for each other, and help each other through times of trouble. Jesus does all that for us and more. Sometimes He asks us for favors to help Him with His work as well. Maybe comforting someone in time of sorrow, maybe helping those who can't help themselves. It's all because we love the Lord. Show that love to someone today, you'll be glad you did!
This past week many of us went out to Houston, Texas to work with the Fuller Center on their disaster recovery efforts...many people are still without homes because of the extensive flooding out there. God put us in a place where we could make a difference because we were willing to volunteer in His name. All we needed to do was say "yes Lord" and He took care of the rest. A few folks out there are now much closer to living in their home again, all because we opened our hearts to our neighbors.
He commanded us "love your God with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself". Open your heart and love one another today, and take one more step toward your home in Heaven.
