On the airplane yesterday I read from a book entitled Crazy Love by Francis Chan. He said “People who are obsessed with God are known as givers, not takers. Obsessed people genuinely think that others matter as much as they do, and they are particularly aware of those who are poor around the world”.
Listen to these words of the apostle James (James 2:14-16 Message) Dear friends, do you think you’ll get anywhere in this if you learn all the right words but never do anything? Does merely talking about faith indicate that a person really has it? For instance, you come upon an old friend dressed in rags and half-starved and say, “Good morning, friend! Be clothed in Christ! Be filled with the Holy Spirit!” and walk off without providing so much as a coat or a cup of soup–where does that get you?
Francis Chan, a pastor of a large congregation in southern California, practices what he preaches. After returning from a trip to Africa, he sold his house and moved his family into a house half the size so that he could give to the poor. I dare you to read what he says about lukewarm Christians. He is doing things with his life like the prophets of old to illustrate what is said in God’s word. Take 15 minutes to hear him talk about Crazy Love at www.juststopandthink.com.
So what about my Burmese friends, why don’t you look at my post Myamar – You – The next chapter….
