Life is more than for ourselves

Philippians 2:3-5  Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.  (4)  Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.  (5)  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

One of the greatest messages that Jesus taught us was the sharing of our lives with others. Thinking about others more than how we think about ourselves. Recently there have been a string of natural disasters happening all around the world. There have been many in my own country where hundreds have died. It is sad to see and hear. My heart goes out to all those people who have lost so much. I can't help but weep for these people and pray that the power of God will come and comfort them.

 Many people ask how God could allow these things to happen. I am not sure why so many easily blame God for horrible things. God has allowed the planet to progress in the direction of Sin. The planet has been allowed to mature without the full hand of God around it. The maturing planet causes more natural disasters. We will see them more and more in the future. These disasters are not God's judgment, that will come in the future, these are just natural disasters.

Many people ask in times like these where is God? Well I can see him every where in the midst of these circumstances. Look at all the organizations christian and non that are rushing to these disaster sites to give a helping hand. We can see on the News channels that God is everywhere when people are giving water and supplies to those who have lost so much. We have seen pictures of  caring workers holding and comforting the wounded and the worried. Ladies and Gentlemen, God is in the midst of believers who carefully and passionately serve others. This the reality of our Lord.

During these perilous times, it is up to the Believers of Christ to show the power of God to the hurting. We need to make sure our lives are constantly about helping and serving others. God gives us more not to have this rich life style but to serve others. True believer I encourage you all to reach out to those that are less fortunate than you. Show the Love of God to the hurting world.
