Spiritual Director’s Message for February 2009

Friends Of Keystone Emmaus Community

They will know we are Christians by our love, by our love, yes they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

How many times have we sung this song on Walks to Emmaus, Chrysalis, Gatherings, Candlelights, and other

worship services? It’s so important to Emmaus that we usually sing it on Sunday afternoons of the Walk. But do people really know we are Christians by our love???

Some days it would be pretty hard to see that I’m a Christian.  It can be in traffic, at work, at home with Janice, or at the grocery store. Sometimes my temper and/or impatience get the best of me.  I want to be a loving, patient person, but it’s sure hard to do. I have to remember Jesus and all the examples he gave us how to act and live. I also need to pray that God would help me be a better person. I can’t do it by myself, none of us can. We need God and we need to help each other.

The world needs us to be loving Christians that are not afraid to show our faith. There is so much we can do to show Christ in our homes, at work, in our city, state, and country. REMEMBER YOU MAY BE THE ONLY BIBLE A PERSON EVER READS. It may be a simple action such as letting someone go before you in the grocery store or
it may be more involved such as working on a Mission Trip. Hope to see you Feb 19-22 at Chrysalis Send Off, Candlelight, or Closing.

God is Counting on You
