Helping Hands - November 13, 2014

Galatians 6:2 (New International Version, ©2010)
2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.


There is growing spiritual poverty in our country. More and more people are lost and have no where to turn to relieve the stresses and pressure of their lives. Depression, anxiety, addiction, compulsive behaviors (over-eating, excessive gambling, spending, etc.) and substance abuse are also soaring. The times are hard but the relief is close to everyone.

It's times like these that the church of Jesus Christ can be at its finest. As believers, we are to be the "hands and feet" of Jesus. We are to be those who provide the help and assistance, along with the hope and grace, that are available through a commitment to God's gift of salvation in Jesus Christ. Our eyes need to be open to any opportunity there is to help, and our hands need to be open to sharing the blessings that God has given us.

If someone you know is in need of a helping hand, now is the time for you to be what you have been called to in Christ. Now is the time for you to pick up your brother or sister and let them see Jesus through you.
