You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another” – Romans 12:10

Yesterday I went along with my elder brother to share God’s word in a remote village. The pastor of that church used to provide lunch for the believers as most of them come from a remote place in the mountain. Most of them are tribal people and they used to walk for more than 10kms to attend the church service. 

In the previous week itself the pastor has made the announcement that we are coming there to preach. By God’s grace we could able to go there and preach His word. Once the preaching was over, I was standing outside the church and looking at the people who are eating and was touched by two things. 

First thing was the food was kept in a big vessel and everyone was so patient and following an orderly way to get the food. I was so surprised by their behaviour. I have seen in certain places where people will crowd themselves near the food vessel and fight for the food. The people whom I saw yesterday gave preference to one another and did everything with so much affection.
At last, my brother was praying inside for the people who came there and as I was standing outside I saw someone bringing food in a separate vessel. With that vessel he went inside the church and so I understood that it was brought for us. I looked at the food and it was the same food that was provided to the believers. 

As we sat to eat, the pastor introduced three young girls and said, “As they knew that you are coming they went and brought special rice for you and cooked it for you specially.”

They were so young and their deed touched my heart. They heard that two people are coming there to preach. They don’t know who we are but yet with so much of love and care they thought that we might find difficult to eat their rice which they usually cook for themselves and so they took time and had spend money to buy rice for us and cooked it by themselves. 

I was really touched by their love. Though they didn’t know who we are they loved and cared for our desire. That made us to love them with all our heart. 

My dear young friends, caring for others desire is important for a better relationship. Your loved ones might not convey their desire all the time to you by their words but yet you should understand their need and preference and you should try hard to do your best for them. That will bring joy and peace to your relationship. They will in turn love you and you will have a blessed relationship.
