The police are at the neighbor’s house again. It’s the third time this month, and you wonder if it is going to end. Is it the eldest son again or another child? You hear the yelling through the night. They always communicate with loud voices. There is someone being led to the police cruiser in handcuffs. The mother is crying. The smaller children stay behind in fear. You can’t imagine how people can live that way. You are thankful for your stable family. You go to church and pray and….wait…what was that? You feel something tugging at your heart and mind. Jesus is knocking. Now the choice is yours to let him in or not. If you let him in, he’s going to want you to do something out of your comfort zone…you just know it.
Fulfilling the law of Christ means to love God with your heart, soul and mind and to love others as you love yourself. This means helping each other along the journey for none of us is above the other. We all need help. None of us were meant to be Lone Rangers. Don’t be afraid to answer the door when Jesus comes knocking.
Prayer: Thank you, Jesus, for always being there for me. I pray that I will always open the door and allow you to work in me for your kingdom purpose. Amen.
Faith tip: Ask God to help you see others as he see them.
