Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Romans 12:9-11
Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by all of the happenings in the world these days? Does it sometimes feel impossible for significant change to come? Everything seems to be impossible when you look at it in light of your own limitations. God warned you that these days would come. With so much going wrong so quickly, you may be tempted to think there is nothing you can do. Not so! You are a part of the body of Christ! God has gifted you to be part of the solution in your corner of the planet to the people within your reach who need love, a listening ear, and a willingness to gain insight into what they think and feel. In other words, love!
The enemy of your soul desires for you to bunker into self preservation, but you possess everything you need to minister to those on your watch (2 Peter 1:3). Resist the urge to make it complicated! Let His Spirit be your guide, and with a prayer always on the tip of your tongue, step out and let God use you in any way He desires. Loving others is always the next right thing to do. You will be amazed at what He can do through you in your crazy, hungry-for-hope corner of the world.
