VerseD: Galatians 6:10

So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
Galatians 6:10, ESV

We take care of our own. Interestingly, if we live or Christ’s love, we will probably pass it on to our lost, hurting world, so that they then will see our good works and praise our Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)

VerseD: Matthew 23:11

The greatest among you shall be your servant.
Matthew 23:11, ESV

We should not seek power or authority in the Church. We should be loving each other through service and helping each other.

VerseD: Matthew 6:3

But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing
Matthew 6:3, ESV

We help others for love’s sake, to glorify God, not to get attention or rewarded.

Love God by loving others.

VerseD: Romans 12:21

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Romans 12:21, ESV

If the Antichrist was in front of you, dying of thirst and starvation, would you help?

We help others for God’s glory. He does not need our help defending Himself or the Church.

Simply do good.

VerseD: Matthew 6:19

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal”
Matthew 6:19, ESV

It is okay to have money and possessions, but our main focus and desire should be for heavenly things: the Lord’s righteousness, God’s glory, souls won through the Gospel.

VerseD: Galatians 1:10

For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Galatians 1:10, ESV

May we always seek to please God above others. Some may be offended, but some may turn and repent to glorify God.

VerseD: 1 Peter 4:16

Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name.
1 Peter 4:16, ESV

If we truly are persecuted for our faith and the Gospel, we are counted as worthy to suffer as our Lord.

Remember, they are persecuting Jesus. We are merely His ambassadors.
