Listen, people of God: you have been SO blessed. And, with the Spirit of God living within you, you have something that many others are not so blessed to have. Do not let your extreme blessing turn into arrogance over those we meet who act in wicked ways.
Instead, treat them as Christ has first treated you:
Look upon them, and have mercy. Look upon them, and speak to them the love of Christ.
In many of these situations, what is RIGHT to do may be hard to see. But when these times come upon you: STOP; pray; and seek God’s Will. He will present to you opportunity to serve him. For he is with you.
And look at these people and think not contemptuous thoughts, but think instead: MAN! THESE PEOPLE NEED JESUS SO BADLY! Then: Give them Jesus!
Let us so serve this poor broken world, by the power of God’s Spirit, until every knee shall bow and every tongue proclaims: “Jesus is Lord.”
