Finding the Strength to Love


"Evil is stark, grim and colossally real." - Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength to Love


With MLK Day approaching us, I thought it would help to remind us of the prophetic words of Dr. King that still echo from the past.  Through his sermons on Christ-like love, Dr. King offered us a solution for the prevalent evil that exists on earth and among mankind.  In essence, Dr. King urged us all to seek the higher calling of living lives that offered the love of Christ to others.

Imagine if we found the strength to love in ministry.  We would embrace the lost souls who returned to Christ with repent hearts and restore them back into the fold with joy and forgiveness.  Look at how Dr. King took on the example of Jesus Christ.

Picture how it would be if we found the strength to love through our businesses.  We would extend love to our employees and business partners as we held ourselves and those under our authority to a higher standard of customer service.  We would show our customers and vendors how Christians in business could operate a business with God as the ultimate authority over all matters.

Can you find the strength to love? Is it still possible to overcome evil with the love of Christ? You will only know by trying to imitate Christ and His love in all of your ways for all of your days.  Find the strength to love.

Living in His Image

Stacy Adams"Christianity has an image problem." - David Kinnaman, The UnChristian

Human beings are made in the image of God.  God directs His people to live holy because He is holy.  God offers His Word, so that His people can follow His Word in their daily lives.  God sent His only begotten Son to earth to redeem mankind into a relationship with Him and for Christians to follow the example of Christ.

However, the biggest issue that most people who do not accept the faith of Christianity due to Christians.  Actually, the issue has more to do with the hypocrisy of Christians than it does with Christians as people in general.

Why?

The Christian is to live as an example as much as he or she is to live by example.  When we follow that example, others tend to gravitate towards us and follow us in our walk with Christ.  When we fail to follow that example and others witness us, we send mixed messages and cause others to become confused.  If we want to win souls for the Lord, we need to provide a witness that gives a positive example to others.

 Follow my exampleas I follow the example of Christ. - 1 Corinthians 11:1 (NIV)
