Love in Action
Christ’s method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The Saviour mingled with men as one who desired their good. He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. Then He bade them, “Follow Me.”
I’m always happy to help others in whatever way I can, and our Community Services Department gives me the opportunity to do just that. I can hardly describe the good feeling that I get when I volunteer my time, skill or resources to assist someone in need.
Our love for God and others must be demonstrated in action. Throughout Jesus’ ministry there is evidence of a genuine holistic approach toward humanity; especially people who were marginalized, disadvantaged, and disenfranchised from society. These included the poor, the sick, the unclean, the prostitutes, and tax collectors—all societal outcasts. Jesus expanded His kingdom to places, people, and cultures that the Jews had never considered God to be interested in and has thus set these examples for many (Matt 9:10, 21:31, Rom 14:14).
We follow our Master’s example.
