 Becoming Who You Were Meant To Be

  One day, a boy climbing in the mountains found an Eagle’s nest with an egg in it. When he got home, he put it under a hen along with her other eggs.

When the Eagle hatched, he thought he was a Chicken. He learned Chicken behaviour and scratched in the Chicken yard with his ‘siblings’.

He didn’t know any better.

Sometimes he felt strange stirrings within himself, but he didn’t know what to do with them, so he ignored or suppressed them.

After all, if he was a Chicken, he should behave like a Chicken.

One day, an Eagle flew over the Chicken yard and the Eagle looked up and saw him. In that moment, he realized he wanted to be like that Eagle, to fly high, to go to the mountain peaks he saw in the distance. As he spread his wings,

He suddenly understood that he was like that Eagle…

Though he’d never flown before, he possessed the instinct and capabilities.

At first he flew unsteadily, then with greater power and control. Finally, as he soared, he became the creature that God had made him to be.

‘When we realise in our hearts we have been leading only half a life, the other half is going to reach out to us until we seek the Lord to empower us to Live it.

We were made by God and for God.

Until we understand what He has planed for us and what He has equipped us for we will not feel fulfilled or complete.

God wants our Love and Friendship without Him in our life it is without real meaning or purpose.

It’s only in Jesus Christ that we discover our purpose and our calling.

 Isaiah 40: 31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and  not faint. (KJV)

Music – Eagles Wings
Here I am waiting.Abide in me I pray.
Here I am longing.For You
Hide me in your Love Bring me to my knees
May I know Jesus More and more
Chorus
Come live in me all my life Take over
Come breathe in me I will Rise on Ea-gles wings
Beautiful Savior Lord I love to feel your touch
You never forsake me Lord You are always there
Each passing moment it’s You that I adore
I Love you Jesus more and more and more
Chorus
I can fly I will rise on Eagles wings
I will run and not faint
soar in your ways like an Eagle
Put my hope and trust in you God
 
Words and Music By Rruben Morgan 
 
Music - Eagles Wings  


 
 
 
 God Bless you greatly for your Support and Encouragment

Christian Men are Soldiers of the Cross…..

S - FIRMToday I want to express our  thanks for the Christian Men who stand on the firing lines, willing to risk all to share God’s Truth and to defend it regardless of the personal cost to themselves and sometimes this cost may mean giving up their own plans  or even their lives and to also thank them for their faithfulness and heart desire  to help, uplift, encourage, motivate, correct in Love and uphold others in prayer, offering Hope Eternal.

Some do this in their role as a Pastor or Elders in a Church, some in Christian Ministries, others on Blogs through their messages or with heart touching Poetry and some even share Gods Truth through jokes and others with Photography, capturing  the beauty of God’s creation, which makes us realize how Loving and Awesome He is and motivates us to give Him  heartfelt Thanks and Praise.

We give Thanks also for Christian Husbands who Love sacrificially and seek to provide and protect their wife’s and Children, who also appreciate their wives as their Helpmates both in their Marriage and with needed Church commitments and are thankful for their, Love, support, companionship and understanding.

And we Thank those Men who are in Authority and in Leadership in the Church as well as in their Marriages and are accountable as our Shepherds under Christ Jesus’ Authority our Eternal Shepherd and so have much responsibility, they need our support, encouragement and prayers, their task is not an easy one and they may feel it goes unnoticed or unappreciated but many do appreciate their faithfulness but if it was only Jesus who noticed, that’s a Multitude.

Christian Soliders 8God has chosen to need Men and Woman, the roles He has given us are very important.  He has placed  Men in  Authority and as Leaders and woman as their Helpmates and  even if sometimes the Battle rages and seems insurmountable we  can  be assured we are not alone, the Battle is The Lords.

Sometimes, we may find ourselves trapped in the worries and hassles of life and the load seems very heavy, Jesus wants to carry it for us, and to also give us strength for each day.

Teach them everythig I have told you

Thank you for all those Men who  Stand up for Jesus, you are indeed Soldiers of the Cross…….

I would like to now encourage you with a well known song, the Tune in the Video is  upbeat but the words are original and are strong and firm.

Stand Up, Stand Up For Jesus

Stand up, stand up for Jesus! ye Soldiers of the cross;
Lift high His royal banner, it must not suffer loss:
From vict’ry unto vict’ry, His army shall He lead,
Till every foe is vanquished, and Christ is Lord indeed.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus! The trumpet call obey:
Forth to the mighty conflict, in this His glorious day;
Ye that are men now serve Him against unnumbered foes;
Let courage rise with danger, and strength to strength oppose.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus! Stand in His strength alone,
The arm of flesh will fail you, ye dare not trust your own;
Put on the gospel armor, and watching unto prayer,
Where calls the voice of duty, be never wanting there.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus! the strife will not be long;
This day the noise of battle, the next the Victor’s song;
To him that overcometh a crown of life shall be;
He with the King of glory shall reign eternally.

by George Duffield, Jr.

The Power of Your Love

Our Light

The Power of Your Love

Nothing can compare to the Love with You we share and this we
can never repay for there is no way,
Its greater then we can understand displayed in Power
by Your Mighty Hand,
Given from Your Heart at the very start,
It’s impossible for it to increase because You Loved us Totally
even before we opened our hearts door asking You to come in when
we were dying in our sin.

You paid the price to give us Liberty so that with You we
would share in Eternity,
This price You paid on Calvary’s Tree pain borne in Love to set us free,
To restore our place by the Fathers side so we can be
prepared as Your Bride.

We Love you Lord but how can we express this Love
for You that we profess,
How can our lives acknowledge what You have done,
Calling us to You and making us One,
By obeying your Commands with a willingness of heart,
giving Love that only you can impart,
Choosing to accept a second birth and being willing
to put You first,
This is how we can express the Love for You that we profess,
Showing without a doubt you are what Love is all about.

Your the Light that burns brightly in the darkest of night guiding
our way and giving us sight,
For we were blinded by fear and the hardships of life
and sin that overshadowed all that was right,
You draw us Lovingly to Your side and in Your Power we choose to obey,
Putting our Trust in Your Unfailing Love we know Your Peace and
Joy within and we are released from our sin.

You can see into our hearts even though no words can express
the Power of Your Love that gives us Your Rest,
The Freedom that is found and the Joy we
cannot contain for You have called us by Name,
drawing us together and making us One,
In You we have Victory and have been Set Free we are
now in Your Eternity.

Meet Angel Morell; Former Transexual Now Servant of God

Freedomborn ... Aussie Christian Focus:

As I was preparing an Easter Post, I stopped for a break and read Lauriann’s story about a young man named Angel Morell , I’m still crying, it really touched my heart. What better way could there be to remember this Easter, Jesus’ great sacrifice for us, than to share the difference He makes in a messed up life, how can we doubt that He died to set us free from sins slavery, how Powerful is His never ending Love.

Thank you Lauriann for the Light you share in the darkness….. Christian Love from both of us – Anne

I wish to share with you the testimony of this young man who God rescued from homosexuality.  This story really touched my heart, because as a mother and a teacher of young children, I can hardly understand why young kids go through sexual abuse.  We need to pray for the children and the youth of this world.  The world needs to know that God STILL has the power to transform a man or a woman from homosexuality.  A lot of people believe that this is not possible; but the Bible begs to differ.  God is still King; He can still perform miracles: He can still free us from sin.  If anybody says that a gay person was just born that way; they don’t know how powerful God can really be!!!

Luke 1:37 “For nothing is impossible with God.”

God hates Homophobia

Gen.2Why does God hate Homophobia, not just fear of them but people hating Homosexuals and even seeking to physically harm them, He rejects this strongly, it is not acceptable because we are not to hate or maliciously hurt anyone, even our enemies, we are to Love them and do good to them. We remember we all have sinned and needed God’s grace and Mercy, Jesus died for us while we were still sinners, He suffered so we could be set free from punishment and from the slavery of sin. To say we haven’t sinned and so don’t need Salvation is calling God a liar.

JESUSSo we can be very assured that God does not hate Homosexual people but He does reject and hate the evil they do and cause (see below) the same as He hates all evil, it has harmful consequences. We are to Hate evil too and to warn others in the Church when they continue to sin that they are in danger and this includes everyone who promotes and agrees with sinfulness because we are not to call good what God calls evil, such as the Homosexual lifestyle in all it’s forms. It is not Love to watch someone walk into Satan’s Trap and look the other way, it’s Apathy or fear of rejection, both are about self.

1Corinthians: 9-10 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the Kingdom of God. (NKJV)

If our words of correction and warning are God’s Truth given in Love and for Love and even if they convict and others are angry or resentful, they are still good seeds, fleshy pride hates correction and so we need to pray that these seeds will bear good fruit in their lives and not be snatched away by Satan’s lies through man’s deception, even though these are often sugar coated and itching ears accept them readily.

Titus 2 :11 -15 For the grace of God that bringeth Salvation hath appeared to all men,Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and Godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave Himself for us, that He might Redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

God warns us all not to continue to sin, or accept it as OK and so encourage it in ourselves or others, we are to have heart repentance, meaning choosing not to sin and so put our flesh to death by The Holy Spirit as Paul tells us in Romans 8 and other Scriptures, after sharing his battle with his flesh in Romans 7 and affirming that Jesus is the only way to have Victory. If we do sin it means we are not Born again, we are still in darkness but we can be forgiven if we have True repentance, Jesus is our Advocate. When we are Born again of God’s seed and perfected in Love, with the mind of Christ, we cannot sin (see scripture at end of message ) Salvation is a free gift but it is not fleshy works to seek to obey God.

Set free from sinWe are to agree that we are dead to sin in Christ Jesus and set free from it’s bondage  we are not say we will continue to sin and claim it’s OK because we are forgiven. ( see below) If we continue to sin we will reap what we sow and Eternal Separation from God our choice not His  but we do need to know and recognize what sin really is and our weaknesses and shortcomings are not sin, including our doubts or confusion, unless they lead us to sin, this is the same with anger or fear but they all need to be resolved and in Jesus Christ we have all the answers and the healing we need, His Truth sets us free.

Jude 3: 1-7 Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the Salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people. For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the Grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord. Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord at one time delivered His people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe. And the Angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling, these He has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day. In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.

puppets-on-a-string 7But like us it is everyone’s own choice where they spend Eternity, with God or without Him, we can warn others but we can’t make anyone repent and turn from the evil they do and say, we can’t even pray that God will make them repent, He does not want Puppets but for us to choose to willingly to Love and obey Him and when we do He will empower us so we can.

He knows that all sin is a sickness in the flesh and that like Cancer eats away all the goodness in us until only evil is left but also that good and evil cannot co-exist and Love being the most powerful force in the Universe means when we Have Godly Love for Him and others and show this in our words and actions, Satan flees. gender-symAs I was reading a daily News media on the Internet recently, it saddened me to read of a beautiful looking woman who wanted to be a man, this obsession started in her younger years, she has now had a hysterectomy and takes hormones to be one, but as we can see, her being in a man’s form did not come by Natural means it was man made and this is the same with men who want to be woman but regardless of what they take off or put in they are still the same sex they were Born.

What was interesting was the same story this woman told has been used by other Transsexuals including men who changed to woman, it seems to be passed around, or is it that all sin has a familiar ring, why is it wrong because God tells us it is.

Romans 1:24-27 Therefore God our Creator gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to Sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the Truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served the created things rather than the Creator who is the Lord and is to be praised forever Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their Women exchanged Natural sexual relations for Unnatural ones. In the same way the Men also abandoned Natural relations with Women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other Men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their wrong doing.

Baby 8There is no Medical evidence of a person being Born a Homosexual, only what has been fabricated,  Doctors will choose the sex of a Baby when it is born with both genitalia by their Hormones and will often but not always remove the bodily organ that is not in agreement with their findings, these Children normally mature well and live Heterosexual lives.

Homosexuality can be environmentally related, such as a girl wants to be like her brothers, or a boy wants to be like his sisters and so they will often pretend they are and mimic them or they are influenced strongly by a Parent wanting them to be the opposite gender when they were born and treating them as if they are this, or favoring one child because of their gender over another and also by the Parents own preferences and examples when their gender is not defined, sometimes it’s because of abuse from the opposite sex or because of forced encounters with Homosexuals when they were young and so they become  confused as to their sexual identity and for others it’s just curiosity or for new thrills.

G SymbolsBut what ever the reason a choice has been made to be something they were not Born, either male or female and to become a Homosexual choosing their own sex to mate with, or those with the same focus, Transvestites or Lesbians.  They may also become Bi-sexual which spreads Aids even more rapidly, as the bacteria from the anus attacks the immune system and is passed on even to babies, over 30 million men , woman, babies and children are now suffering from Aids and Aids related conditions, some are fatal and many Homosexuals commit suicide in fear and because they have not found what they were looking for.

But God knows their hearts, He knows what motivated them to sin and why and He continues to Love them but longs for them to come to True heart repentance and choose to no longer do evil, so He can empower them not to sin  and do good instead (see below) He wants to heal them and set them free from sin’s slavery and bondage, so they can be in fellowship with Him Eternally.

John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed

1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been Born of God.

1 John 3:6-8 whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.

1 John 2:4-6 He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word, in him verily is the Love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.

Romans 6:18-20 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

Romans 6:22-23 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

1John 4:16-17 And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world.

1 John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God Sins; but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

Thank you for listening,  may you all be greatly blessed of The Lord as you walk closely with Him – Christian Love in our Unity in Christ Jesus – Anne.

Petals of Joy…..

Pink Rose 40Petals 1Petals 1Petals 1Petals 1On a warm day in Spring, one friend asked another,
“How is it you have so much Joy and so much inner Strength?
You never seem to stay discouraged.”

With her eyes smiling,she said,
“I know the secret!”

“What is the secret?”

To which she replied,
“I’ll tell you all about it,
So that you can share the secret with others”

Roses42Petals 1” The Secret is this “

I have learned there is little I can do in my life
that will make me truly happy if I depend on myself.
I must depend on God and Trust and obey Him
in doing so I have Joy and my deeper needs are meet.

Roses42Petals 1When a real need arises in my life,
I have to trust God to supply according to
His knowledge and riches.

I have learned most of the time I don’t need half
of what I think I do but when I do have a need
He has never let me down.

Since I learned that ‘Secret’
I have Joy through the good and bad times.”

Roses42Petals 1

Her friends first thought was,
“That’s too simple!”

But upon reflecting over her own life she
recalled how she thought a bigger house
would make her happy,
but it didn’t!

She thought a better paying job
would make her happy,
but it hadn’t.

When did she realize her greatest happiness?
In being thankful for God’s Blessings…

Roses42Petals 1

Sitting on the floor with her grandchildren,
playing games, eating pizza or reading a story,
sharing with loved ones and friends and
so much more… all gifts from God.

Now you know it too…
We can’t depend on people or things alone
to make us happy, some will even let us down,

God Never will

Only He in His infinite wisdom can give us inner Joy.
As we Seek Him, Trust Him and obey Him!

And now I pass the Secret on to you!
So once you get it, what will you do?

Roses42Petals 1

Tell someone the Secret, too!
That God in His Wisdom will always take
care of Us!

But it’s not really a secret…..
We just have to believe that we can…..

Really Trust God

And then the Petals of life will fall Joyously…..

John 3:16 God’s Truth shown by our Actions too…..

I Posted the  Story below in 2o12 and it was Reblogged today by Rocky ( link below)  I had received it  by e-mail  years ago. It has been viewed now by over 1,000 people on my Blog but no doubt has been seen by many others through e-mails and on the Internet too,  Rocky said he heard it in a Sermon recently.

Rocky’s link – http://rockyrojas88.wordpress.com/

So because this Story has touched so many  hearts, I thought it would be good to  Post it again for those who are new to Blogging like Rocky or  have just started following me.

As I shared with Rocky, this story reminds me that God’s Love is an Action not just words but it is also about sharing God’s Truth, we do not remain Children without understanding, we grow up and need to know His Truth, it sets us free because  it is and  will always be very powerful in breaking down Strongholds. Jesus is The Truth and The Light in the Darkness.

God tells us that in the end times that His Truth is what will defeat Satan and so he will be cast into Hell, but while ever people believe and share Satan’s lies and so deceive God’s Redeemed Children, making them weak in their Faith and so unproductive because of doubts and fears, Satan remains strong, he also deceives others so they  believe it is all about themselves and their selfish boundaries and what they want and need materially and so they don’t put others first.

They may say on judgment day, Lord, Lord but He won’t listen unless they come to heart repentance now and show they believe in Jesus as their Lord and Saviour, that He is in Spirit God with The Father and The Holy Spirit, The Godhead or Trinity as we call them today and that He has set them free to Love Him and others and to walk in Holiness, this is what it means to believe in His Name.. Love is an Action not just a Word.

Matthew 25: 42-46 Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels For I was hungry, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer Him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungry, or a thirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall He answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, In as much as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

We remember that Jesus said to the Disciples to wait until Pentecost and than with The Holy Spirits Power they were to go into all the World and share The Gospel, which is God’s Truth of His wonderful redemption in Jesus Christ.

When we are filled with The Holy Spirit we long to share God’s Good News, we don’t have to make ourselves  but don’t you think that having our Blogs are a wonderful gift so we can share with others the Eternal Hope we have and offer practical help when needed too.

I hope the Story below brings you much Joy and reassurance as it has done with me and many others.

Thanks for Listening, Christian Love from both of us – Anne.

 

“A young boy was selling newspapers on the corner, the people were in and out of the cold but because he was so cold he  huddled up and didn’t sell many papers . 

He walked up to a policeman and said, “Mister, you wouldn’t happen to know where a poor boy could find a warm place to sleep tonight would you? 

You see, I sleep in a box up around the corner there and down the alley and its awful cold in there for tonight. 

Sure would be nice to have a warm place to stay.” 

The policeman looked down at the little boy and said, “You go down the street to that white house and you knock on the door. When they come out the door you just say John 3:16 and they will let you in.”So he did.

He walked up the steps and knocked on the door, and a lady answered. He looked up and said,”John3:16.”

 The lady said, “Come on in, Son.”

She took him in and she sat him down in a split bottom rocker in front of a great big old fireplace, and she went off.

The boy sat there for a while and thought to himself…  John 3:16… I don’t understand it, but it sure makes a cold boy warm.

Later she came back and asked him “Are you hungry?” He said, “Well, just a little. I haven’t eaten in a couple of days,  and I guess I could stand a little bit of food,”

 The lady took him in the Kitchen and sat him down to a table full of wonderful food. He ate and ate until he couldn’t eat any more. Then he thought to himself

John3:16… Boy, I sure don’t understand it but it sure makes a hungry boy full.

She then took him upstairs to a bathroom to a shiny bathtub filled with warm water,and he sat there and soaked for a while.  As he soaked, he thought to himself: John3:16 …

I sure don’t understand it, but it sure makes a dirty boy clean. You know, I’ve not had a bath, a real bath, in my whole life. The only bath I ever had was when I stood in front of that big old fire hydrant as they flushed it out. 

The lady came in and got him.

 

She took him to a room, tucked him into a big old feather bed, pulled the covers up around his neck, kissed him goodnight and turned out the lights. As he lay in the darkness and looked out the window at the snow coming down on that cold night, he thought to himself…

John3:16 … I don’t understand it but it sure makes a tired boy rest. 

The next morning the lady came back up and took him down again to that same big table full of food. 

After he ate, she took him back to that same big old split bottom rocker in front of the fireplace and picked up a big old Bible.

She sat down in front of him and looked into his young face. “Do you understand John 3:16?” she asked gently. He replied, “No, Ma’am, I don’t. The first time I ever heard it was last night when the policeman told me to use it,”

 She opened the Bible to John3:16 and began to explain to him about Jesus. Right there, in front of that big old fireplace, he gave his heart and life to Jesus and so started his walk to find the better way as he trusts and obeys.

He sat there and thought: John3:16 I don’t understand it, but it sure makes this lost boy feel safe and contented. 

When we have The Love of God  in our heart we can understand how God was willing to send His Son to die for us and why Jesus would agree to do such a thing. We may never fully  understand the agony of the Father and the Angels in Heaven as they watched Jesus suffer and die…

 But we know it was because of His intense Love for You and Me and all Mankind  that kept Jesus on the Cross till the end…  

 It sure does make life worth living!

 Author Unknown

 John 3:16-18  For God so Loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth on Him is not condemned be he that believeth not is condemned already because he hath not believed in the Name of the only begotten Son of God.

Our Heavenly Father, is our source of our existence. He keeps us functioning each and every day and as we seek His way we have His Victory, He does not cause us to suffer or willingly let harm come our way but He does Discipline us by letting us seek our own will and so we suffer for going  our own way. Philippians 4:13

 We show by our Godly words and actions that we Love God and others even our enemies…

James 2:15-17  Suppose a Brother or a Sister  in the Lord is without clothes and daily food.  If we say  to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but we do nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by Action, is dead.Philippians 4:13

Galatians 6:9-11  Let us not become tired of doing good, for at the right time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.  Therefore, as God gives us the opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
