Who Cares Wins Part 1
Updated: May 17, 2022
Why should we care?
Welcome to our new 5 part mini-series 'Who Cares Wins' with apologies to the British SAS motto 'Who Dares Wins'.
Q. Who cares? A. God cares.
God Himself is a carer, we know this from reading the Bible;
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
Did you notice that there is a connection between loving, giving and caring?
God cared enough to become one of us, to live, to die and to break down every barrier between us and offer an unending relationship with Him.
Matthew 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
God cares about the small details, pervasive in depth care for each human being.
Jesus expresses his loving care this way: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” John 13:34-35.
Jesus gave us a special duty of care towards our fellow believers which includes all your church family.
However, there is a wrong kind of care; 1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety (cares) on him because he cares for you.
God does not want you to be burdened down with worry but rather to put all your cares in a barrel and roll them over to Him and take both hands off!
Who cares? The church of Jesus Christ cares for the vulnerable in various ways;
For the widows and orphans.
For the hungry and thirsty.
For the naked.
For the addict.
For families (including children) including those needing counselling
For people with learning disabilities.
For sick people including those with mental health issues
For the elderly (dementia sufferers) and for the homeless.
Everyone in your church fellowship should care for your brother and sister and that includes your leaders!
Who cares? We do.
Who cares? I do.
Prayer; Lord teach us to love like you love, Lord teach us to give you give like you give and Lord teach us to care like you care. Amen
