Who’s Lookin’ Out For Ya?

Share with God's people who are in need. Romans 12:13

This is the second time this week that I've singled out this verse. I discovered something this week from looking at this passage: there's a reason God put this verse here and it's this, God will use us to help other Believers. It seems obvious, doesn't it. But quite frankly, Believers who are in need won't get help from the outside world.

25 years ago when I became a Christian I believed that people looked out for one another around the world. Was I ever wrong! Recently I figured out that mostly the media of the world ignores the plight of Christians. Sometimes they are downright hostile towards us. Rarely is the hostility or blindness deserved. As I've said before, there will be a day soon when the Christians will be overlooked for jobs, told what they should believe, and harassed for their moral stances. It hasn't hit the West fully yet but it will. Other nations are experiencing lesser freedoms and more antagonism.

Those are the people we need to be reaching out towards. Ask God to show you how to do that. Just one thing. Just one single, solitary, lone thing.
