What can you do for others?

Do you sometimes wish you could do more for others? Some people seem to have a knack for doing for others. I'm proud to say my daughter is one of those. She is always picking up someone from somewhere, taking an elderly person grocery shopping or just visiting them to see how they are doing. And she thinks nothing of it. She does it cheerfully and willingly, despite having a busy schedule of her own and a home and family to look after. Karon lives what Jesus instructed his disciples to do when he spoke about His second coming. He said the King (referring to Himself) will say to the people on his right:

"I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me." (Matthew 25 : 36)

And the people will answer Him, "When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?" (v 39)

Jesus continued, "And The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’" ( v 40).

Jesus went on to teach that He will say to those on His left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels' (41).

This is a serious thing. You can get thrown into hell for not looking after the sick, or visiting those in prison or feeding the hungry? According to Jesus, you can because it shows you do not have love. 

The apostle John put it this way:  "We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death" (1 John 3: 14). 

He continues,  "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth" (v 18). 

Is there someone you can show love to today? God bless.

Do you love to read but find that the most of the books out there contain graphic sex, violence or material that goes against your Christian beliefs? I have written a series of books called the "Egypt" series which strongly bear out the redemption story while providing all the emotion and suspense of a gripping novel. The first book Coming Out of Egypt is available here and the second book In The Wilderness is now on preorder here. Not sure if you're ready to buy?
