Love Others

TODAY’S VERSE

“If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.”
Romans 12:20 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Paul quoted this verse from the book of Proverbs. It exemplified the way Christ wanted us to live. Paul preceded this proverb with, “Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge.” He follows it with, “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Paul was telling the Church in Rome, the same city where they were persecuting and killing Christians, the same town where he was imprisoned as he penned this verse, to love your enemies. And love they did. Tertullian reported that the Romans would exclaim, “See how they love one another!” Justin Martyr explained Christian love this way: “We who used to value the acquisition of wealth and possessions more than anything else now bring what we have into a common fund and share it with anyone who needs it.” Clement, wrote of Christians, “He impoverishes himself out of love, so that he is certain he may never overlook a brother in need.” God calls us to no lesser love. We must witness to our generation by word and action. Today, ask God to give you an open heart and eyes to love others in a supernatural way, to love when He calls you to.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, fill me with the Holy Spirit so I can see what You see, hear what You hear and feel what You feel. Help me to love others with Your heart.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
