God's Gift To The World's Poor - 11/18/2009

Today's Mental Image:

Church of the Poor

My dear friends,
God has given a lot of faith
to the poor
people in this world.

James 2:5 CEV

The Church is growing fast everywhere but in the wealthly countries of the world.  The early church grew by thousands per day - predominately among the poor of the Roman Empire.  "This one thing we ask," said the Jerusalem Council when letting go of Jewish forms as mandatory, "Remember the poor."  Indeed God has given a lot of faith to the poor.  They have always been our cutting edge!  So what about the non-poor?  Are we left out of God's generousity in giving faith?  We don't have to be - according to JAMES 1:10-11.  But - it requires a change of mindset.  Check it out:  JAMES 1:10-11.
