If you’ve read my blog for a while you’ll know I used to sprinkle a lot more content on theology and Christ in general. My bad. I should add more. However, I’m going to leave theology and teaching to the pros. I’m a deacon and as such I don’t teach on theological matters. My ministry is a practical one. So I will start trying to add more practical, hands-on ways to show people you belong to Christ.
Here is one way I demonstrated Christ’s love in a very practical way. I work downtown and there are a LOT of homeless and drug addicted people that hang out down here. On Tuesday a older woman (obviously from one of the above categories) walked up to me and asked for money to buy some food because she was having a diabetic reaction. I didn’t give her any money. But I did walk with her to a local cafe and asked her to order whatever she thought she needed to help with her “diabetic reaction.” She ordered a bannana nut muffin. That’s all she wanted. So I paid for her and told her that Christ had provided for her this morning and to be sure and thank Him.
“Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” – Matthew 25:40
I’ve walked past people ignoring their needs for far too long. Praise God that He gave me someone to minister to.
