Portrait of Jesus

"Don't get tired of helping others. You will be rewarded when the time is right, if you don't give up. We should help people whenever we can, especially if they are followers of the Lord."

Galatians 6:9-10

There is great power in being a person who helps people in need.  When a man or women who is desperate for help encounters that help in the form of another person, there is an immediate and unbreakable bond, formed by the glue of love in action!

When someone, literally rescues you from the threat of death you will certainly listen to everything your rescuer might say to you. 

That is what Jesus does.  Before He rescues you from the fires of Hell because of your faith in Him, you may come to believe in Him and all the "facts" about who He is and what He did.  But after He snatches you from the grip of the Evil One and rescues you from Hell every Word of Jesus becomes a joyfully obeyed command!

Every time you help someone in need, you are adding another brush stroke to a portrait of Jesus! It is by your good works that the world sees what Jesus is really like.

"Lord Jesus, help me today to be a rescuer who shows all the world what you are like!  Praise You Holy Name, now and forever, Amen!"
