Good morning everyone,
I just finished reading a book I would consider a 'must read' for all of you! The title of the book is 'same kind of different as me.' It is about a modern-day slave, an international art dealer, and the unlikely women who bound them together. Even though we all are made up somewhat differently in a physical sense, there may be miles apart difference in the way we are raised up! We were created by One God who determined who our physical parents would be. Denver Moore (modern-day slave) is to be introduced by Ron Hall (international art dealer) at a small church before Denver is to deliver a sermon. Ron is supposed to give an introduction that outlines the life about Denver's tough upbringing! Instead Denver ask Ron to say, 'Just tell em I'm a nobody that's tryin to tell everybody bout Somebody that can save anybody!' That line, ladies and gentlemen, is really what being a Christian should be about. We are all created to share the love of Christ with those that don't know Him personally. Even though there is a ton of difference financially between the rich and the poor, there is really no difference in the message that Jesus Christ wants both groups to know about! You may never know how much your witness means because the fruit of your labor may not show up until many years after you have left this earth! John 12:24 says, 'Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.' Our life should be devoted to sharing the love of Christ with others. Who knows; maybe you will be connected to someone that only God could have brought together! Go out today and share with someone what the Lord has done for you. It may just be what draws them in to want to know more about their Father!
Your brother in Christ,
