Love in Action

Being a blessing to others. Are you a blessing?  Do you really care about people?
1Peter 3:9 - We want to encourage.  We need a tender heart.
Proverbs 18:21 - We can curse with wrong attitude. We should try to put ourselves in their place.
We need to be full of compassion. Jesus was full of compassion. He was sensitive.
Mark 5 - The woman with the issue of blood and His touch. He showed compassion.
Compassion is being sensitive.  Are you sensitive?
Compassion takes advantage of an interruption. How do you respond when your life is interrupted by the needs of people?
Compassion is gracious.  Jesus met people where they were at.  He didn't just loved them, he liked them too!!  We have to be merciful.  Love is active. Could their needs affect you!!  Love isn't love until you give it away.

God Knows the Difference

Jesus sees our soul and the potential in our lives.  We have a lot of questions and need quiet with God.  God do you know what I am going through?  Is there a point to this?  We choose to believe that God, you know me and what I am going through better than I do.
Mark 5:25-34  The woman with the flow of blood touched Jesus's cloak and believed she would be healed.  Jesus felt it even when the crowd was pushing. A push separates and a touch brings you closer!!!  World of difference between a touch and a push.  What gives us credibility is what we say.  What we say needs to be true.  Modern Christianity appears not to be Christian.  Can God evaluate our souls?  Man looks on the outside and God sees the inside.   We hear God and something changes in us.  Sometimes we are not sensitive.  God see's beyond the mask.
