for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
First above all we are called to love one another...
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."- John 13:34
Secondly we are called to share the good news, the gospel...
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere--in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." -Acts 1:8
So what does that mean for us that don't live anywhere near these actual places? Well, if you look at a map you will see that Jerusalem was the closest to the disciples, and then a little farther away was Judea and then to the ends of the earth.
So to me that means I should be sharing with everyone near and far. Whoever God puts in our path we are to be a witness to them. Now that doesn't mean that we always should be literally preaching, because sometimes the lives we lead speak louder than any words we can utter. I once heard it said that if people don't believe you care about them, then they are not going to listen to what you are saying, and that is why we are to do all things with great love.
Lastly we are not called to do this alone...
"Two people are better than one because [together] they have a good reward for their hard work. If one falls, the other can help his friend get up. But how tragic it is for the one who is [all] alone when he falls. There is no one to help him get up." Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
We are better together, we need each other because we live in a crazy world and life is often hard and can be discouraging..that's why it is easier to find our #fiveminutesofbrave when we have our people cheering us on.
So let's join arms, and hearts and live this life together as we love others and each other well.
Now I have a challenge for you-
Not all of us are called to be missionaries in China, or the jungle somewhere, but it says we are to share the gospel of love to the ends of the earth.
So, if we are called to stay here what are some ways we can accomplish this? Share in the comments or on Facebook.
Because of Him,
