PRAYER: Today. Pray that as God opens doors in and around your walk, that you would be a true example of Him in it all.
DEVOTION: “We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak” (Romans 15:1) Some who come to these meetings know nothing about the power of the Holy Spirit. They get saved and are quickened, and after the Spirit comes upon them, you will see all these manifestations. In love and grace, you should bear with them as newborn babes in the Spirit and rejoice with them because that is only the beginning to an end. The Lord wouldn’t want us to be anything but “strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.” (Ephesians 6:10) to help everyone around us.” (pg 88)
I love the first part of this paragraph. Straight out of Romans. We who are strong ought to bear the infirmities of those who are weak. I think we can extend that idea just a little bit. We who are informed ought to help those who are not informed. We who know should tell those who don’t know. We who have ears to hear should help others hear. We could go on and on but the point is simple.
We know Jesus. We ought to share Jesus with others. We need to be strong in the Lord and power of His might so that we can share that power with others and help them become strong in their faith and their walk.
Those who hurt need help. Those who are deaf need ears. Our lives, our own walk and our own journey exists to bring others the knowledge and experience that we have with Jesus. We live to serve. We don’t live to lift ourselves up and take us higher and higher. We live to lift others up. Give others the help they need to see Jesus in it all.
Today. As you go through your day, your life, your walk, your journey. Be Jesus. Be Jesus to someone else. Give the deaf ears to hear. Give the blind eyes to see. Give the uninformed information. Lead by example. The example that has been set before us.
