Can you do it?

Will you do it? Will you allow Christ to use you today, to share the love of God?

Share God with someone today, by giving out love…God is love and Jesus is life. Don’t be selfish, be selfless!

Take the focus off of yourself today, and decide to sow love into the lives of others. Can you do it? All you have to do is take the focus off of you, and put the focus on others.

Text a scripture to someone who is hurting. Send a card to someone who is lonely. Encourage someone who’s been discouraged. Love someone who appears to be unlovable.

There he is sitting outside of the shelter in Detroit; walking down the street in Southfield; standing outside of your office building, in Bloomfield Hills. There she is, walking the streets of Birmingham, with her two children, after being beaten by her boyfriend. There he is, on his way to school, to get his only meal of the day, because his mother is on the street and his father is dead. There she is, looking for a guy to love her because she has been on the street since she was 12, and now she is 15 and pregnant.

There he is asking for food; she is reaching her hand out for a quarter; they are dirty and lost; in bondage and in darkness. They are asking for things; perhaps using some drugs; maybe addicted to alcohol……but they are all looking for love.

Will you give a smile and a prayer to someone you see on the street? Will you give a kind word or share an act of love with someone today? Will you stop and take a moment to give someone hope; to show someone love; to offer someone a drink of Living Water, and the Bread of Life? Look around you today….everywhere you go, there is a ministering opportunity. Everyone is looking for love.

If you are going to the bank, love someone. Stand outside of the Department of Human services; maybe someone needs a Word. Go to the hospital and pray from someone in the emergency room.

“Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:…” Philippians 2:3-5
