Luke 6:20-26

The discourse is directed to all of us – within the Church, the community – He also stresses the woes to all of us. If we take this message to heart, there really should be no such thing as a comfortable Christian. If we really believe that we are the Body of Christ, then as long as there is a hungry child, an oppressed person, a hurting friend – we are uncomfortable because as sharers of Christ’s body, we share in that suffering and should be very sensitive to it.

Lord Jesus, wake me to the signs of the times and minister accordingly.
