I’m sorry to say that things are no longer the way we were used to. Jobs may never come back. Sicknesses may get scarier. Earthquakes, floods and countless other natural disasters could kill us in a million ways.

I’m happy to report that this is not the first time we’ve faced this level of challenge and by God’s grace we’ll survive this time, too.

But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.

The first step to doing something about someone’s Spiritual life is to do something for someone’s physical life. Feed them, clothe them, talk with them and listen to what’s on their mind. These are all the things that Jesus did when he met people. Deal with people in the ways that they are hurting and they will understand the kind of person you are in Jesus. Only then can you demonstrate the kind of person He was in changing your life.


Dear Father help us to be ones who do the right thing as well as say the right thing and to demonstrate that your people are active in more ways and places than in a building on Sunday. Give me just one person to help this week! Amen.
