Message of Encouragement
I would like to share this massage of encouragement from the book of Isaiah with brothers and sisters in and through Gospel News.
The book of Isaiah 25: 6 - 8 (Good News Bible) says: “Here on Mount Zion the Lord Almighty will prepare a banquet for all the nations of the world – a banquet of the richest food and the finest wine. Here he will suddenly remove the cloud of sorrow that has been hanging over all the nations. The Sovereign Lord will destroy death for ever! He will wipe away the tears from everyone’s eyes and take away the disgrace his people have suffered throughout the world. The Lord himself has spoken.”
The above words of Isaiah are encouraging words of hope for all of us. In the world today there is a lot of sorrow, suffering, death, war etc., which affects all people. Even if things are, as they are in the world, there is hope of good things to come as stated in the book of Isaiah above. To receive them, we have to obey God’s words in the Bible though it is not easy. Many times we find ourselves falling short of God’s words, but this does not mean that we should not try to do what the word of God says in the Bible. We should continuously pray to God to help us be obedient and have faith in Him; since the Bible says no one can please God without faith, help each other on the narrow and slippery road to God’s Kingdom, and also other people in need etc. This help can be in different ways such as: help brothers and sisters understand the word of God/Gospel, those who are sick to get treatment, provide food, clothes, or essential things in life etc. Some of us find ourselves not giving the necessary help to the brethren or any other people in need, giving a lame excuse of not having lots of money, not being able to help, not earning enough money for us and also help others etc. Our God does not require us to do things we are not able to do. We can use whatever blessings God gives us to help others. The small things/help we do or give our brothers and sisters or other people are what our God requires us to do. There is no need to wait until we get lots of money to help others, because that will not happen or will take quite a long time given the fact that many of us don’t earn that kind of money. The little we get is enough to share with others, because everything we get comes from God and He is able to replace whatever we give others, or even give us more than we need. May our Heavenly Father help us do what is stated above. God bless you all.

Lightening the load
No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it to anyone else.
