July 6 True Beneficence :

July 6 True Beneficence "As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men."-- Gal_6:10 .

PowerPoint Presentation:

WE ALL have a mission in the world, though we may never be called to cross the sea, or to visit distant lands to preach the gospel. Christ's command to each us begins with the person next to you. Do not wait to be neighbored, but neighbor somebody who is in need. The best way to bring in the Kingdom of God is to bring the person whom you can most easily influence to the Saviour . All great work in the world has commenced, not by committees, but by the consecration, self-sacrifice, and devotion of single individual.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Apostle indicates three methods of helping people. The restoration of the fallen ( Gal_6:1 ). My friends, if someone is caught in any kind of wrongdoing, those of: 1. You who are spiritual should set him right; 2. But you must do it in a gentle way. 3. And keep an eye on yourselves, so that you will not be tempted, too.

PowerPoint Presentation:

How often in daily life a Christian man or woman is suddenly overtaken by some temptation, to which they yield, and which leaves a deep stain on character. Thus were David overtaken and also Peter! What an agony of remorse ensues! The Psalms are full of bitter repentance for such transgression. The sinful soul has to bear a heavy burden indeed; and too often his fellow-Christians pass him by with averted faces and frowns. No one visits him, or cares to be seen in his company, or tries to help him regain his former footing. "Christ's law," which we are called to fulfill, is to seek out the erring one, to go after that which is lost, to restore the wanderer, to help carry his burden, considering lest we be tempted, and lapse into the same sin.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The care of Pastors and Ministers ( Gal_6:6 - If you are being taught the Christian message, you should share all the good things you have with your teacher) . If all who are being taught in Church and Sunday school would set themselves to minister to those that teach them, how many a weary servant of Christ would pluck up new courage and hope. Communicate helpfulness, sympathy, prayer, the grip of the hand, the expression of thankfulness for blessing received.

1Jn 3:17 But whoso hath this worlds good - Here is a test of this love; if we do not divide our bread with the hungry, we certainly would not lay down our life for him. Whatever love we may pretend to mankind, if we are not charitable and benevolent, we give the lie to our profession. If we have no heart of compassion, we have no love of God in us; if we shut up our heart against the poor, we shut Christ out of our hearts, and ourselves out of heaven. A child was standing barefoot in front of a shoe store shivering. A lady came up and said: "My little friend what are you looking so earnestly in that window?” He replied: "I'm asking God to give me a pair of shoes." The lady took him by the hand and led him into the store and asked an employee half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy and a pair of shoes. He asked if I could lend a tub of water and hand a towel and took the child to the back of the store. With love began to wash the feet of the child and wiped, and then I put on socks and shoes. She patted him on the head and said "No doubt little friend that you feel more comfortable now". As she turned around to leave, the child very happy, reached out and took her hand, looking at her with tears in his eyes asked: "Are you God's wife? Mrs. replied:" No, but If I am a servant of God and all that you ask of heart, he will give it. " Dear friends, imagine what the world would be different if we all had such acts as beautiful as love and generosity of Mrs.? Would you do that? Tag and share the love story to water everywhere.

The ministry of all men ( Gal_6:9-10 - So let us not become tired of doing good; for if we do not give up, the time will come when we will reap the harvest. So then, as often as we have the chance, we should do good to everyone and especially to those who belong to our family in the faith) . These opportunities of doing good are always recurring, and at every turn there are those who need a helping hand. "The poor," said our Lord, "ye have always with you." Let us bear a little of the burden of each, and especially do it for those who belong to the household of faith.

Prayer Give us grace to be encouragers of others, never discouragers; always making life easier, never harder for those who come within our influence. Lord thank You for letting us know the beauty and bliss of being good to others with the example You showed us, leaving Heaven and Your throne only to assure us of safety and goodness. Thank You Father, in Jesus name, AMEN.
