For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time.
1 Timothy 2:5-6 (NIV)
World Changer: Jesus’s generosity towards mankind can be understood as the maximum sacrifice of a person that gives his life for others. As Paul explains to Timothy, Jesus gave Himself in ransom for all.
Now let’s look at the story of the rich man and Lazarus, looking at the selfishness of this man who enjoyed everything and was so selfish that not even the crumbs from his table allowed Lazarus to eat, and being in hades in the place of punishment and looking from afar Abraham, whom he recognized and called him father, asked him to send Lazarus to give notice to his brothers of what he was really going through, what would be a punishment of eternal death.
His selfishness He was still in this place of torment and he never asked Abraham for Lazarus to tell his brothers to stop thinking only of themselves and to start worrying about their neighbor.
Let us ask the Lord today to remove all hardness from our hearts and to give us the generosity of Christ, even giving our life for our neighbor, because generosity mistakenly thinks that it is only about giving money and it is not like that, because Christ what gave was His life and that assured Him that He was seated at the right hand of His Father in heaven.
*That as born again Christians, starting today we pour into the lives of others and share the Word of God in every possible way to win souls for Christ.
Let us pray that God gives us grace so that our heart is that of Jesus, today is the day of salvation (Romans 10: 8-13).
Christ in us the hope of glory and our victory of love and service to God (Colossians 1:27, 1 Corinthians 15:10, 57). Hallelujah.
