Train yourself to help others

There are times when people will need help from you. They might need your prayers and also encouragement to to what is right. Sometimes they might need to be corrected gently. Then again they may be in need of godly counsel from you. Are you ready for it? If not then train yourself to help others.

Please avoid saying that you are not equipped so you can’t help. That may be true but what stops you from getting trained? You can even get trained in church at times besides you can always learn from the Bible. Please avoid saying that every time a troubled person comes all you will do is refer him/her to your pastor or preacher. There are times when it makes sense to directly refer them. However there are times when you can at least a short pray and speak Biblical exhortation before you send the person to your pastor or preacher.

You don’t need to be an ordained church minister to help others in need. Does giving food to the poor, need you to have a theology degree? Certainly not. Does being kind to a person who suffered an accident, need you to first attend a seminary? Absolutely not. Don’t ever let any legalism stop from doing what is right and in your power to help others in need!

Christ be with you.

Take measured challenges

To increase your faith sometimes you need challenge your limits. Discover what the Lord says to you and then try to apply it in your life. No need to take undue risks, like putting the Lord to the test as it’s a sin to do so. Instead take measured challenges for this.

When you hear about any injustice in the news, pray that justice is soon delivered against the criminals while the innocent get relief.

When you are called to pray for someone, come in faith for the needy instead of waiting for the situation to become worse.

Never put the Lord to the test. Like deliberately putting yourself in the dangerous situations just because there are Bible verses stating that God will protect you.

Simply understand that there are Bible verses that also stress that you be wise whether you are a friend or a servant of God, so that you live only for his glory.
