Never Give Up On Others
Written by Rise & Shine on April 7, 2021
I know that people sometimes shake their heads about my “naïve” desire to help the hardest cases. Even the ones that I know are trying to con me. But I will never stop believing in people’s potential to change. And I will never surrender the hope that they can. That’s why I never give up on loving people, even when it’s costly or hurts. Not because I can change anyone or have to answer for them, but because I have a relationship with the One who never gives up on me.
Some day, we all have to answer to Him about how we use the gift of mercy He gave us. Just remember this if you don’t think you can love the unlovely… His love plus our weakness equals transformation. His blessings added to our meager abilities produce miracles.
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
When He lives in you, you’re only limited by what He can do. And that’s pretty much everything. Now go and be the Church, church. Love people to wholeness.
