Rich and poor and the Gospel

Jesus had a lot to say about riches and the poor.

Mark 16:15 King James Version (KJV) And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel, heal the sick the lame and the broken hearted some Christians are very nervous about this one After all it requires a lot of commitment.

We seem to think that we must have a special anointing to do this. But we need to remember that in Joel chapter two verses 28=29. and in Acts chapter two. We are told that the Holy Spirit will be poured out on the young and the old. Visions, prophetic words and dreams . There is no favoritism in the house of God

In our society today with all the push toward materialism. it is as well to remember what our lord Jesus had to say about it.

We are to be givers, of ourselves and from our money. So that the gospel can be preached around the world. There are people who can be encouraged to walk in the fruits of the Holy Spirit.

It is thought that riches means money all the time. Not so, there are some that are rich in the spirit and some poor. We need to level the playing field and encourage those who think they are not capable. Some think i could not do that, how will they know if they are not encouraged.

We see the evidence of poverty death and sickness in the news media every day. The wars and children being beheaded. Families that have lost every thing. Jesus said we would always have them with us. But now we can see them on our television screens. Brings them into our homes to see. We need to pray and do all we can.

If you look at the refugee crisis as it is being called. We see people who have lost everything desperate for a way out. Some with very young children who are frightened and wondering what is happening to them. A third person not a Jew tended to the man who had been robbed and assaulted. Let us pray that not many people turn away from these people.

You see these people are looking for a sanctuary where they can find peace. Away from the turmoil of war and all that it entails. A roof over their head, warmth and food, The basics that we take for granted like running water and a bed to lie down on. Not much to ask, but for some of these people it would be a dream come true.

I have seen genuine refugees a few years ago. You will see a vacant look in their eyes and the children? bewildered and to see that in a child is awful. Man in the scheme of things does not seem to care about the consequences of wars and disturbances. There are people who care, but how sadly outnumbered they are.

This is the duty of the church, to do what it can to help. Jesus said. In Mark chapter 9 verses 41-42. For whoever gives you a cup of cold water because of your name, as followers of Christ. Truly i say to you he (or she) will not lose their reward.

42. Whosoever causes any of these little ones who believe to stumble. It would be better for him ( or her) with a heavy millstone around their neck. and had been cast into the sea. L A S B. I have put the her in in brackets. We all have to appear before the judgement seat. For some people who cause these people to suffer. The chapter of Revelation Chapter 21. Talks about such people. They will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

You see their are lots of people who would believe. But because of what they see in the world do not. Not realizing that none of this is the work of God. Yes the church of God has a lot of ground to make up.
