For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
In today’s world the poor are the least loved and this shows by the way their hopes were raised and later disappointed by people especially those in power. Last week in South Africa we were voting and as usual the poor communities were promised heaven and earth, but no body will be surprised if the government doesn’t fulfil their promises.
Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? (James 2:5).
Contrary to popular belief and modern strategies, God usually chooses the least and the poor for His Work. i’m not saying that God only calls the poor but that His criteria for calling people doesn’t include social or financial status because God wants to give mankind things that are far above what people are fighting, crying, and killing for. If God save you not because of your status in society there’s no reason why you should let those in a “lower class” than you perish. Jesus died for all of us equally so we can’t desire for only certain people to be saved. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: (Matthew 28:19).
Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.(Matthew 19:19).
Everybody body knows that we(Christians) are instructed to love everybody as ourselves, meaning that anything we wouldn’t do or let happen to ourselves we can’t let it happen to another person. You don’t want to go to hell and you also don’t want your loved ones to go to hell, hence you can’t let someone go to go hell or their loved ones to go end up in hell. You can’t force someone to be saved but save your conscience by telling them the truth, that is Jesus Christ and what he did for them.
Love is the reason for our actions because it’s the reason why God gave His Son for us. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16).
