Actions Speak Louder Than Words

And the King will answer them, I assure you: Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.  Matthew 25:40

Unto the least of theseWhat are you doing with the resources God has given?  Who do you know that needs a loaf of bread or a dozen eggs?  Do your words and actions model the example of Jesus?

These kinds of questions are so convicting for me that I already feel the need to get on my knees.

Are we giving a cup of water (or food, or clothing, or help) when one who does not have it shows the need?  Or are we sending them away with a hug and the thought that we have problems and needs too?  They may not ask, but when we see the need we must act upon it.   We really do show our commitment to our LORD through our actions.  Can we even imagine the surge of New Believers if  our relationship with Jesus is evident in all our thoughts, words, and actions?

Applying ourselves to a way of life  that shares our faith and our resources regularly with those around us is one way to reach the non-Believer.   Caring about others goes a long way toward saying and showing that we really are who God says we are.

There is an additional page on this blog called Lifestyle Evangelism where there are suggestions for caring, sharing, and reaching out to everyone around us.  We are commanded to reach and teach the lost but we must also remember those who are found.  Everyone needs a helping hand sometimes.  Be the one to give it!

Take the time – TODAY!
