Ministering On The Streets! by E. Davenport April 30, 2012
1 John 3:17 But if someone who is supposed to be a Christian has money enough to live well, and sees a brother in need, and won’t help him–how can God’s love be within him ? 1 John 3:18 Little children, let us stop just saying we love people; let us really love them, and show it by our actions. 1 John 3:19 Then we will know for sure, by our actions, that we are on God’s side, and our consciences will be clear, even when we stand before the Lord.
A few weeks ago we foiund ourselves on the streets of Chicago with an OPPORTUNITY to minister. What did we do? We jumped at it!
You see, every store seemed to have people standing around asking for money. But, we all know that is the world currency. It’s what people “think” they need…even people who do not stand outside of a store think they need it.
We gave from our pocketbooks and from our hearts…gang members, drug addicts, alcoholic, the disabled, people whose challenges could not be seen with the human eye.
