I hope you guy’s had a chance to connect with your mom this past mother’s day. Wendy had the message on Sunday and the overall theme was Loving the unloved and wanting the unwanted, and I can’t help but think that of all the work that a mom has to do, helping a child feel wanted and loved has to be at the top of the list.
Just think of all the issuses that could be avoided if all the children felt loved by their mom. It is a sad commentary, but the hard truth is there are kid’s all over the world that are in desperate need of someone to love them.
“Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat” Mother Teresa.
If you ever want to see the face of Jesus just look for someone who has no one to love them, no one who wants them. Jesus said” If you do it for one of the least of these you did it to me”
WHY THEN, Why does the Church of Jesus Christ have such a hard time doing this??????
I think one reason is lack of the Holy Spirit’s influence in our lives. If we could learn to follow, It would be really very simple Jesus said ” follow me and I will make you fishers of men” and the same place He lead the twelve He is leading us, Just look at the Gospels. Jesus always ended up with all the “wrong” people, and that is what keeps the body of Christ from being as effective as we could be We are afraid to follow because Jesus doesn’t tell us where he is going.
We have to want what God wants, If we really want to see God’s supernatural power evident in our lives we have to learn to be lead by God’s Holy Spirit. And thats the way I see it in my market.
