Following the Early Church Model This Christmas

Helping others in need goes back to the beginning of the Church. In this passage, the believers in one location helped their less fortunate brethren in another in a very big way.

And in these days prophets came from Jerusalem to Antioch. Then one of them, named Agabus, stood up and showed by the Spirit that there was going to be a great famine throughout all the world, which also happened in the days of Claudius Caesar. Then the disciples, each according to his ability, determined to send relief to the brethren dwelling in Judea. This they also did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul. Acts 11:27-30 (NKJV)

When is the last time that you had more than enough and you felt God's leading to do something big for a brother or sister who had little? Perhaps God is moving you to do something for someone this Christmas. Listen to God's prompting and be blessed by blessing another. If you have ever supplied for someone else's lack, you know what that means. If you haven't, I would encourage you to pray to God to open your eyes to someone so that you can have such a blessing.
