True Christianity happens in active service for others. On this, eternal destiny depends. Contact with human suffering frees the soul of selfishness.
We can all love when we’re connected with Christ.
It’s not possible for a heart where Christ abides to be destitute of love. We love God because He first loved us. We should love everyone—Christ died for all of us. We can’t come in touch with divinity without coming in touch with humanity, for in Him who sits upon the throne of the universe, divinity and humanity are combined.
Connected with Christ, we are connected with our fellow men by the golden links of the chain of love. Then the pity and compassion of Christ will be manifested in our lives. We won’t wait to have the needy and unfortunate brought to us. We won’t need to be entreated to feel for the woes of others. It will be as natural for us to minister to the needy and suffering people of Tanna as it was for Christ to help others in His time. Wherever the heart reaches out to bless and uplift others, there is revealed the working of God’s Holy Spirit.
His love so broad, so deep, and so full that it penetrates everything.
