Compassion for the Impoverished

Matthew 9 36

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 9:36

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

Jesus was not only concerned for the souls of the multitudes who followed Him, but also for their physical needs. We are called to be Christlike – gentle, caring and compassionate. There is a homeless epidemic in this country, many people are living in poverty and people are going hungry every day. The Coronavirus pandemic is making a complex problem even worse with many people losing their jobs, their homes and ultimately their lives. Everywhere you look there are people who desperately need help and more importantly, they need Jesus. People are hurting and it’s up to us as Christians to find a way to do what we can to help them by sharing the love and compassion of God and to bring souls to the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ. If not us, then who?

Hope for Today

Romans 15 13

Verse of the Day:  Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Without hope one feel helpless, alone and powerless. As believers we know that our God is the source of all hope. Hope for healing, hope for peace, hope for joy and hope for the future here on earth and in heaven. All hope comes from knowing, believing and trusting God. By His love, grace and mercy God has given us the precious gift of hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. If you feel hopeless, seek a relationship with the author of all hope, the Lord our God.

Speak Up

Proverbs 31 8.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:8

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.

Speak up for the people who have no voice.  Stand up for the oppressed.  It’s our duty to help those who cannot help themselves.  We ought to go into the world and donate our time, money and resources for the poor, the destitute and the suffering.  We must be protectors of those who are unable to plead their own cause. It’s up to us to share the Gospel and demonstrate the teachings of Jesus to the people so they too may know the mercy, forgiveness and love of God.
