Reach Out in Christian Love
Be Strong Be Well - Wednesday, April 1
It’s difficult not being together physically in worship and Bible study as we do normally. These times have become a test of our faith and resolve. This is a time to be encouraged and thankful for what we have.
Everyone is in the same boat as far as our being apart from our brethren. But we all are unique in our personal living situations. Some have family within the household (or at least close by), while others are alone.
In these unusual times we still find wonderful blessings from our great God and our Christian brothers and sisters.
We receive comfort. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).
As God’s people we share the qualities of Christian character and behavior. “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another...But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection” (Colossians 3:12-14).
I am confident thoughts of love, compassion, and concern for one another are on the minds of all of us . Some may be feeling down and out and discouraged. Brethren let’s keep in touch. We have the technology to call, text, email, and even chat face to face on our phones or other devices. Utilize these things. Show our love! —Chris
