The Act and Lifestyle of LOVE

Ultimately, here’s the result I see again and again: love for orphans transforms. It transforms children as they experience love and nurture they’ve come to live without. It transforms individual Christians, as we encounter Jesus deeply and personally in a destitute child. It transforms the broader community of believers as well, pulling us corporately beyond a religion of self-development to a costly-but-muscular faith. Finally, love for orphans transforms a watching world, as it sees—perhaps for the first time—the Gospel embodied.

May we grow to love and live the lifestyle which Jesus Christ Himself has demonstrated for us to live… loving the children, and calling them forward. Not being so caught up in our professionalism and self-preoccupying ambitions, but rather recognizing that love is the most important thing, the most transforming thing, and most needed thing in the lives of a multitude of children who have no one to hold them, hear them, help them, nor love them. Let’s rise up and make the difference in their lives, not in mere words, but in actions of generosity, gentleness, and genuine love!
