A hurt soul needs a mender.
One rejected needs acceptance.
A depressed one needs to be encouraged.
One feeling like a waste needs to know their value.
A person struggling with an addiction needs a cheerleader.
Someone down and out needs a break.
One near the edge needs hope.
A person ill needs healing.
Someone lonely needs a friend.
The list, could go on. The truth is, these individuals need Jesus. Most do not think to turn to him, because they can’t see him, but they can see you. In a time, when our world is in so much pain, those who know Jesus, and has the hope he provides, needs to answer the call of duty.
God has placed you where he needs you. You’re the one, who can take the time, speak a word, or give a hug. You may never know the impact of taking a risk of faith to say, go or do, but one day you will. “Do not be afraid,” the angel of the Lord would say to you. The more you reach out, the more you say, and the more you come along side someone, you will find it strengthens you, encourages you, and increases your faith to do more. God will lead you, as you are his servant, saving lives.
Keep one thing in mind; there was someone, just like you, who took the time to be there for you, and shared the love of Jesus with you.

Wow. That was convicting. And encouraging. Thanks. I need the cheerleader to say: Go, be bold. God is with you to change lives.
Thank you for your comment. I believe God is calling His children to a new level of commitment, boldness, and power in Him.
Your words have inspired our Stephen’s Ministry class here in California, as well as our compassion ministry group at church. I am spreading your wisdom liberally out here. What an awesome charge to our eternal “Call of Duty”! Loved it!!!!
Thank you for the encouraging words. God is certainly on the move across our nation and around the world.
