"What an incredible witness it is to a lost and fearful society when the Christian acts like a child of God, living under the loving sovereignty of the Heavenly Father." Henry Blackaby
PRAY: Jesus, I want to Love other people with all my heart, soul and mind. I want to be known as the one who loves others. That should be my greatest job as a missionary, to love You and others, unconditionally. I need Your help to do that Jesus. I have to embrace this commandment, for when I do, everyone will know that I am Your disciple. I want to be so loving that others are attracted to You because they want what You've given me. Thank You for filling me up with new, fresh love today. I pray in Your name, Jesus. AMEN.
REFLECT: John tells us that the best way to have others get to know Jesus is to love them! Not to preach, share the four spiritual laws, or get them to pray the sinners prayer. But just to love them. And our love will lead them to Jesus, as they see that we are His disciples. It's actually easier than we thought. You don't have to go knocking on doors and sharing the gospel with all of your neighbors. You have to be a person of integrity, be great at your work, and then love other people. Then the Holy Spirit will take care of the rest.
ACT: Go out today and change the world. LOVE SOMEONE. Do an intentional act of kindness in your mission field and watch how people will want to know why you did that. You will stand out as a loving person as you live in your mission field with a purpose. Go out now and claim it. Don't hesitate, don't be afraid, don't cower. Just radically love another person and you will be one of God's most effective missionaries. They will know you are one of God's disciples if you love other people.
We would love to hear from you!
