Visible expression of love

visible expression of love

I heard someone who had lived in the Middle East for twelve years ask this question –

If I had to do it all over again, would I spend my life in the Middle East, living among Arabs, trying to be a visible expression of Jesus to them?

His answer was almost immediate.  The Holy Spirit spoke strongly to him, so much so that his body trembled.  He heard these words – I love these people.

That’s when he realized that he loved them too.  But it was not his love that drove him – it was Jesus’ love for them.  This person who told the story was simply a part of the story.

In fact, when you’re asked – what is the answer to the issues in the Middle East – answer them – “Jesus.”  You will be mocked as being simplistic, even by committed Christian friends.

I am only a follower of Jesus who loves Muslims.


Luke 2:1-7 The visible expression of God’s love


Visible Expression of an Invisible God


About evanlaar1922

Have you ever noticed how many special ways God refers to us, His dear children? He calls us His beloved sons and daughters, the righteous, children of the kingdom, His anointed, royal priesthood, the faithful in Christ, His temple, His friends, and so many other loving names that speaks to who we are in Him. Also in many cases, the names we are given at birth have both biblical and heavenly identities tied into them. Our Heavenly Father who watches over us daily has created the ideal path for each of us to take to travel the journey of life, just as a father will make plans for his own child by putting things in place at a very early age for education, health, graduation, and marriage. God has predestined and equipped each of us to carry out a specific purpose that will create the design He desires to be in place for His kingdom to be effective in the earth.
