You Are Witnesses

A simple question with an answer as complex and unique as human DNA.  In this biblical story Jesus happens upon a man who cannot walk and because no one will help him has not made it to the healing pool.

Jesus does not evangelize to him, he recognizes the man’s immediate need and acts to meet it, “pick up your things and walk”.

We never find out if the man by the pool knew who this man Jesus was or if he converted to Christianity, no all we know is that he walks away physical whole.

The Bible is full of examples of Christ making people whole with no expectation that they become Christians first.  

Christ meets them in their need, he listens to them and he makes them whole.

We are God’s hands, feet and voice in our world today!

We are God’s messengers!

Do we meet people in their place of need?

Do we meet their need before we evangelize?

Is our motivation one of passing on God’s unconditional love?

Are we servants to a needy world first?

Are we ready to go where a moment of unconditional servant love may take us?

Are our actions of love loud enough to draw people in to our churches voluntarily?

Has anyone asked you why you do what you do?

Will you allow God to make you whole, one of his messengers of love?
