Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” Acts 3:6
You know, I personally don’t have a lot of money or investments, but I do know how to do good. Jesus went around doing good and healing everyone. It was in his nature to do good because he came from the Father.
We also come from our Father if we have confessed Jesus as lord of our lives and received his sacrifice for our sins, so we too should be following his example and doing good. We have the same Spirit in us that He did. It quickens, or makes alive our mortal bodies, not so that we can live a nice comfortable life, but that we might do good.
Start by being more aware of those that enter your realm. Neighbors, people at the grocery store, people walking by you, people you work with, go to church with, those you pass at the park. Let’s work today on being sensitive to the Spirit in us and minister to those we meet along the way.
Just be nice! Smile and say hello. Offer to help carry their groceries. Don’t be in such a hurry to get where you need to be. Smile at the cashier and tell them to have a nice day. It’s not all about you, make it about others.
May the boldness of the Spirit of God rise up in us as we go through our day. May we be sensitive to the needs of those around us and be do-gooders just as Jesus was. Let’s keep it going and aim to be like Him in the earth.
