From the Pastor's Desk

"The King will answer, 'To the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me'" (Mt. 25:40).

Jesus will speak one day. "I was hungry...thirsty...a prison." And what did we do? With all that pain and loss? Will Christ say, "You gave me nothing"(Mt. 25:42)? It causes me to ponder the words, "If I'd know it was you..." The truth is that it was Him all along, hidden behind the veil of the marginalized and disenfranchised.

We could have done something. My inability to fix everything is not a legitimate excuse for doing nothing. We are called beyond our own comfortable circle of blessing. We are to open our heart so that we might minister with greater compassion to those He brings our way. We might not get written up in the newspaper. We might not solve all the problems. But what we do matters!

Does my faith translate to my daily life? Ask the Lord to open your eyes to a need within your current sphere of influence. God is moving among the addicted, AIDS patients, unwed mothers, and sex trafficking victims. What needs to be done at your home, job, church, community? May it require my joining the Jail Ministry, getting involved with Heart to Heart, World Missions, or Nursing Home Ministry? Maybe. Just maybe.

Most of the time, I just share out of the overflow of what God is speaking to me. But occasionally, there is a need I see in the church or at least in the lives of many people, whom I love. Would you
