People are in great need of help. Our job, as representatives of Christ is to lead them to the place where they can get help. Not beating them down and condemning them to hell but at the same time being honest of the outcome if they do not get help. We only have a very small part in the conversion of a man to Christianity but just as any other part, if we have been called to it, we were tailor made to complete it. Most of the time our ideas or ideas of the world take over and we forget what we are here for. Honesty and truth are what brought us to the cross and the same will also help others to get there as well. Be encouraged today to help others in the same way that someone helped you one day. When they lack any sort of knowledge on where to get help and seem helpless and hopeless, use your knowledge to lead them to the feet of Jesus. Do not try to pick and choose those whom you help as many have stepped past angels unaware to abide with devils. Whether they are rich, poor, black, white, educated, uneducated, easy to help or just downright evil....if they need help and they need the truth, show them the way to the truth and show them where the help comes from. Just as John the Baptist said, In order for Christ to increase, I must decrease.... once you have led them to the fountain, let Christ take over. If they are wrong, tell them they are wrong. If they are right, tell them they are right. That is, if you have received the gifts necessary to know the difference. But in this scripture know one thing, Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father except through him. Truth. Have a great day!!
