We wonder where God is. Just like in the Old Testament, God is here. God is present. Just like in the New Testament when God came as Jesus, God is here. God is present. One thing we need to understand. God is visible when those who obey reveal His presence in the lives of those who suffer.
Governmental programs meant to help the least have good intentions, but often fail due to the volume of need. Those working to assist become overwhelmed and often begin to fail to help those in need. God did not intend for us to shift our burden of assisting others to programs. All of God's creation have been created to serve one another. If we all assist each other, then no one will be in need and there will be no suffering. I am not calling for a system of government that mandates this. It is not something to be forced upon anyone. It must come from our love for God and our desire to love our neighbors as God has loved us.
It is the reason why our church is taking two Sundays a month and devoting our time to serving others. I can't just talk about it any longer. We must represent God now. Everything we do and say, must be geared towards teaching us how to love God and our neighbors. Listen to the sermon. If you want to dedicate your life to serving God with everything you have, then join us and help us change our community.
