"God has come to help his people"

Just reflecting on son Andy 's words and our time in Malaysia. I'm not sure if I mentioned it or not but one church, SIB (http://www.sibkl.org.my/htm/home.htm) will have all 103 of their cell groups engaged in community ministry on a monthly basis. In times when pain is prevelant in a community, as it currently in China and Myanmar, it is when the people of God become the hands and feet of Jesus and people intuitively say, "God has come to help his people" (Luke 7:16). To love and serve in times of distress helps people know that he "loves them just as much as he loves his own son" (John 17:23). God bless all those who help, love and serve.

I believe we must become the hands and feet of Christ; we must extend the good news through caring and love to others expressed in tangible ways that make a difference. It doesn't need to be huge or overwhelming; a small gesture done with great love speaks volumes.
