Helping Opportunities

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Luke 24:13-35

I love the example Jesus provides for us as He comes alongside Cleopas and his companion on the road to Emmaus. Jesus' followers don't understand what took place with Jesus just a few days earlier. They're confused, sad and disheartened (just like we are many times when things don't happen as we planned, or unexpected hardship or tragedy occurs).

So what does Jesus do? He starts by engaging the two men in conversation, asking them questions and listening to their concerns. And as He interacts with them, Jesus is kind and compassionate. Jesus took extra care with these men, explaining and talking through many things. He gave of His time, even continuing the conversation into dinner to ensure that Cleopas and his friend truly understood the things that had happened to Him and what they had just experienced.

Do you look for opportunities to encourage and help others gain an understanding of God's love and Jesus' sacrifice for them? Do you look for opportunities to come alongside other Christ-followers to encourage, support and help them better understand and apply God's Word? How willing are you to give of your time to help others meet and then grow closer to Christ? Why is this so important? Tami

I stand guilty on all points.

Lord, Help me to understand Your love and sacrifice so when opportunities comes my way I will be available to encourage other Christ-followers too.May I study and know Your Word better so that I can be an encourager to other believers. In Jesus' Name. Amen

Thanks Tami for being used by God to let me see my need to seek opportunities to encourage,support and help others to better understand and apply God's Word.

I love to share and help others in growing and learning more about our Savior.
I love to share God’s promise to struggling Christians that struggle with finding a quiet time with The Lord and how important it is to be faithful to spend quality time with Him each day in His Word and Prayer. We have this promise from the Book of James in Ch. 4 “Draw near to God and He will Draw near to you.”
