Do good to others – Prayer for February 18. Jesus told us in the Bible to go into the world and preach the Gospel. But that is not the only thing that we should do. The world needs us, if we do good to one person, it will spread.
Bible Verse for Today
“how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil because God was with him.” (Acts 10:38)
Jesus set an example of what we should be doing in this world. He was going about doing good – not just preaching the Gospel but also feeding people as in the case of the five thousand men he fed. This is to show love to the world. He came to show what God is like, God loves us.
Now, for the love and the message of freedom to go about so that people can be set free and experience the goodness of God, Jesus had to teach a set of people how to do good and how to preach the gospel. He had done this. Jesus told them to go into the world and do the same. The reason why Jesus did this is that He knows if one person helps another person, the person that was helped will be moved to do the same to another person.
The same thing goes to us in this recent time. There is so much evil in the world. Many times people breed hatred in their hearts but one good and turn a heart to become good. We need to set examples for other people in this world. In our workplace, in schools, in society, and the family.
We should stand for the right thing and make sure that people feel the impact of our good works. We should also preach the Gospel to the people. It is the message of salvation, the message of freedom that people need to hear and pass it on to the rest of the world. One more thing that we must remember is if people want to take the path of Christianity, sometimes, our actions will decide.
