One in Christ

In the past few days, we have seen or spoken to quite a few people that we haven't seen in awhile.  A common bond brought us together: to pray for a dear one who is having some medical problems. 

How wonderful when people act in love,

especially when 'genuine' the same!
'Neighbor' comes to mind in definition;
One defined it--Jesus is His Name!
Every one of us need one another.
That requires being 'neighborly.'
Some are better at it than some others.
With each attempt, though, more successful we!

How wonderful when people walk in Spirit.

In doing so, we put ourselves to use!
God will put us where He wants to put us
if, to the Spirit's moving, we stay loose!
God, He has so many uses for us--
are we willing to move when He says "Go?"
Stay genuine to God then one another;
in your life such truth will surely show!

The Word talks about "walking in truth."  The longer you do it, the less you will have to 'attempt' it.  It will become second nature!  I promise you, the world recognizes whether or not you are genuine.  It is more obvious than some want it to be.

The person in this poem is having complications from surgery.  At least 15 churches are involved praying for him and his family.  Genuine, heart-felt prayer.
How wonderful it is when we all act in love.
