Hello everyone…and a big welcome today, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog”…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I am so glad that you stopped by today…and my prayer for you; is that you will truly find God in your day…a God who longs to be there for you…to help and sustain you…through every little thing you may experience in your day!
Yesterday, I was experiencing a situation that truly broke my heart! As I sat with God…sharing my thoughts with Him…heart to heart; I began to realize what it must be like for Him…looking down from the heavens…watching everything that takes place in this world. I began to think to myself…God; you would have to be perfect and the true definition of love, to walk beyond these moments.
I know that in the end times; hearts will become hardened, with not a care in the world; but what about those who truly need that care and hope…and what about those, who are lost, within a world of their own…never realizing that their path is taking them nowhere but down.
One thing I know for sure…God has given me a heart that literally breaks…for the one who is tossed to the side. To me…these are the ones that are truly reaching out to God; but due to no love…care or concern, from others around them; God isn’t evident…or seen, as a God who is reaching back, to help and care for them…and in the end; the result is; that they walk away from God altogether.
We need to remember one thing today, as Christians…and that is that churches aren’t made to be for Christians alone; but for the one who is lost in this world without Christ…the one who is broken and under the control of Satan…and can’t seem to find the hope that only Christ can offer them.
A while back…after a hard day; I was praying for the people around me that don’t know Christ as their personal Savior. It seems that as the world changes and goes deeper into the end times; people have been caught up in a delusion, where they can’t identify with what is truly happening around them. As I thought on this…I began to thank God, with all my heart; that I am on the right path…and headed in the right direction.
You know…sometimes I think we take the word “Christianity” for granted. We tend to see Christianity, as a free ticket to heaven, rather than seeing it, as a personal and loving relationship with Christ.
What I would like to know today is this…how are people ever going to see Jesus and experience His awesome love and forgiveness, if we are always pushing them away from us, while we as Christians only take care of our own. Yes…we are here to pray and support one another; but from what I see; there is another group of people who need to experience Christ’s love even more…and they will never experience that love, if we only view them as unclean.
You know…I didn’t plan on writing this today…but I guess God did. We need to remember that everyone deserves a chance to experience a love that can truly breathe new life within them…and that is only going to be experienced, when we take the time, to first show them the love that Christ is offering them.
Well…today, I look at this writing, as food for thought…and my prayer; is that we all will not only have Jesus living within our hearts; but I also pray that His love will be seen from our hearts…to another heart in need! Take care…have a great day and I will hope to be with you tomorrow! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
