Jesus is Kindess and Compassion

Living in a world diversified by so many languages, different cultures and beliefs it is a great challenge to speak a universal language which will be understood by everyone regardless of ethnicity or race.

But there is one way that can bridge all diversities, binding us together showing that we are all children of the Father, this is the universal language of kindness.

The Word tells us (Colossian 3: 12-17) to clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another. If any of you has a grievance against someone, forgive as the Lord forgive you, and above all these virtues put on LOVE which bonds them all together in perfect unity.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your heart since as members of one body you were called to peace.

Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another will all wisdom through psalms, hymns and songs from the spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts; and in whatever you do, whether in word of deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God, the Father through Him.

Kindness and compassion is Jesus in the act. By all humility and meekness He dwelt among us. The Son of God in flesh and body experienced humanity so that we may relate to kingdom of heaven where we are all made to become citizens in God's time.

Jesus is our bridge, our key , our password which is a direct access and a hotline to dial the Father anytime twenty four hours a day seven days a week. Through Jesus' humanity we get to understand the will of the Father for us as temporary citizens of this world, that is to serve and to love one another as brothers and sisters, as children of one God.

And thus, though as consuming as the worldly tasks are, we are reminded that our real treasures do not lie on material possessions but in spiritual abundance through grace stored up in heaven that do not run out. Hence, in whatever we do, let us work with all our heart as working for the Lord not for human masters, since we know that we will receive an inheritance from the Lord as reward. The reward of eternal life in His presence. A goal we all hope to achieve as followers of Christ.

Let us be reminded that it is the Lord Christ we are serving every time we show an act of kindness to our brothers and sisters in Christ. And anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs and there is no favoritism we are all made His children and there is not preference in status, gender or age. God does not hear us or recognize us by our status but by our FAITH in Him and by how we follow His command to love one another.  Let us therefore devote ourselves to prayer being watchful and thankful looking out for each other. Let our conversation be always full of grace seasoned with salt so that you may know how to answer everyone.

Let us make Christ Jesus, our advocate in heaven,  real and felt through us by our act of kindness and compassion, a universal language that the whole world can truly understand.
