This Week's Sermon: (12-15-15 )

Paul said;

" And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. "    Galatians 6:9-10

 

Since the death of my dear wife, I have never read the Bible as much as I do now.

The Holy Spirit, who inspired the words within the Holy Bible, really placed an emphasis on love.  The Lord wants us as believers and followers of Jesus to forgive our enemies, to love one another, forgive one another, and to do good to all people, especially to our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Since I have lost so much in my life there is very little or nothing at all to look forward to anymore.

So, what I have determined to do, is to make a special effort to do nice things for people.

My wife and I have taken bags of groceries, non-perishable food, to the homeless in Downtown Denver, Colorado.

We knew where the homeless lived on the streets.

We would park the car alongside the curb and open the trunk. They would come over and help us unload the groceries. They were so appreciative and thankful for the food.

I'm glad for the Denver Rescue Mission who get donations to share with the homeless as well.

But there is a real blessing that comes in giving food directly to the homeless on the streets.

I still do this and when the groceries are unloaded, I tell them to promise me they will give their heart to Jesus before they die.

They say they will.

If you are like me, going through a time of discouragement and no longer have anything to look forward to, try doing this for the homeless. It certainly gives you something to look forward to.

I also like to take things to eat for the people I work with, that I know they like.

They enjoy it.

It blesses me and gives me pleasure to know they enjoy it and this also gives me something to look forward to.

Try, like Paul said... do good to people.

And also, read your Bible everyday of your life.
