Find Your Tribe. Love Them Hard.

Yes, some have gotten the Greatest Commandment down. They truly love the Lord with all their heart, soul, and mind, and that’s wonderful. Our relationship with Him matters the most. The Apostle Paul said, “it is my determined purpose to know him…”

But what about the second commandment? Jesus said that it’s just as important as the first. We are to love our neighbor as ourselves.

Who’s our neighbor? Only those that are in your circle? The hurting, the grieving? Those walking in a storm or a valley? We have all been there. That prompting we get from the Holy Spirit when He whispers someone’s name to us, or those we see before us with signposts shouting, “there is an issue here”? Do we think a message on Facebook or a text is enough to pull anyone out of a demonic fog that’s been sent to destroy them?

NO! It’s NOT ENOUGH! Call them, meet with them personally.

Connecting with people, looking into their eyes, not to “shoot the breeze “, but instead to determine the heart of the matter. Then we can pray heaven down on them, and stay with them until His Peace is present. Actual relationships with His people, “being there”, can change, even save, a life.

Mental illness is real. The Spirit realm is real. Let us wake up, and pray up. Let’s put on our armor and march forward with LOVE into the enemies camp, and pull them out, one by one, through the power of real relationships.

We don’t have to have the title of a pastor to minister to those around us. We are to STAY STRONG, STAY READY, and breathe life into our circle every time we have a chance. Let us make the MOST of every opportunity for these days are evil.

I’m DONE with the enemy taking people I love out. I desire to STAY READY and FULL OF THE SPIRIT, and to declare, “not on my watch”. Friend, the Kingdom is counting on us. Someone in our lives needs us right now.

I pray God gives us eyes to see, and that we all realize this life is not about “me”.

Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  Matthew 22: 37-39

    Thank you for telling the importance of talking to people and making physical contact instead of texting. Texting Depersonalizes and many times is miss interpreted.
    If A person thinks texting is the thing then build your relationship with God by texting.
