Lately I have thought about how much we turn a blind eye to things in life. How we walk by so many people in need and act as if they are not even there. How many times we see a wrong being committed and we are too willing to believe it is not any of our business. According to the Bible those that are weak, those in need and those who can not take care of themselves are our responsibility. God tells us whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me. The hungry you didn’t feed, the homeless you didn’t help, the person needing help you turned a blind eye to was one of God’s children and what you do or don’t do for them is what you do or don’t do for God himself. This goes for all of his children but the weak and the defenseless are the ones we should help the most.
We are also taught we could at anytime be entertaining an angel of God and not be aware of it, so we should always be on our best behavior and should live in Christ and walk in love as well as faith. Compassion, Love and being humble are just some of the attributes of a being a Good Christian.To be Christian is to be Christ like, to follow in his example and live life as close as we can to how he lived his. We should be kind, humble, compassionate and full of forgiveness like he was. We are not to have hate for any person on this planet for that isn’t our place or purpose in life. We are caretakers of this world and all that lives within it. The hardest part of being a Christian to some is letting go of their own ego and will in order to allow the will of god to guide them in life. The self is selfish by nature if not design so it isn’t easy to put it aside for the will of god or for the well-being of others. This is the reason being humble is an essential part of being a Christian, for if we are humble then the self is put in the back while those whom we need to help will become our main focus. Besides that when humble we also put God first in our life because there isn’t any distractions created by the self and its selfishness to interfere.
Are Christians Sin Free? No. We are with sin like everyone else, we fall and we are tempted. Christians strive to overcome temptation and put aside sin as we repent and by the mercy and grace extended to us by Christ we are forgiven. Though we have our salvation we still have to abstain from sin and truly repent for those sins we fall to.
Be compassionate and peaceful with all your brothers and sisters, be aware that you could see an angel of God’s and not even know it.
