Look around you. The walking wounded are everywhere.
The wife who walks around on pins and needles because she is never sure which husband will wake up in bed next to her. Will he be the emotionally distant husband, or the man she fell in love with years ago?
How about the single co-worker who always has an excuse for not joining her colleagues for after work fun?
Remember that best friend from college who is continually dating Mr. Wrong? Who cannot understand why she cannot find a faithful man.
What about that teenager in your neighborhood who looks like he just crawled out of bed? No matter what time of day it is.
Then there is that grocery store cashier who never makes eye contact or smiles.
As a disciple of Christ, you must intentionally love those outside your circle of influence. You must be willing to…
Disrupt your personal agenda.
Risk public condemnation.
Remain an anonymous benefactor.
By overcoming your fear, ignorance and hostility, you can…
Extend the loving hands of Christ to ALL your neighbors.
Demolish the barriers to unity and peace.
Help create the Church non-believers will trust because She looks like Jesus.
SHE LOVES ALL. NO EXCEPTIONS!
I pray that all of these people continue to have unity in the way that You Father are in Me and I am in You. I pray that they may be united with Us. So that the world will believe that You have sent Me.
John 17:21 (GOD’S WORD Translation)
