America The Beautiful
There is so much turmoil going on in America and around the world. There's racism, corrupt officials, police brutality, military and peace officers being targeted, hate crimes, murder, rape, and the list goes on. What is the solution to all of this corruption, hatred, and insolence? The answer is the church. I'm not talking about the institution but the body of Christ, the disciples of Jesus. It's time for the church to act. How should we act and react? The same way Jesus did throughout His earthly ministry - with love and prayer. If we start loving those around us, and I mean really loving them- assisting them, doing for them, listening, caring, and helping, then a change will be not only a possibility, but a reality. We, the body of believers, are the light of the world and the salt of the earth. We have been given the Holy Spirit for this very reason. Jesus said that anything we do to the least of these we have done to Him also. So I challenge you today to love someone who seems unlovable; help someone who may seem helpless, care for someone who may not care. Water your actions down with prayer. Jesus isn't coming back for anything less than He started! God bless!
