John 11:5…The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them…(KJV)

This passage friends is another powerful one, full of the words of Jesus Christ. Jesus telling John’s disciples to go to tell John who was currently in prison at the time, and explain to him what Jesus Christ was all about!

I mean that passage is full of Jesus’ truth, but the part verse that struck home with me is …and the poor have the gospel preached to them…(KJV). This really is what Jesus is all about I believe.The majority of the world is poor, really very very poor, and what better remedy is there than to have the ‘Good News’ of Jesus told and taught and preached to them through teaching methods like the Parables of Jesus, striking home those biblical truths to those lost and lonely souls out there, edifying their soul, like it did with me back in the year 2,000, cleansing me of a lot of confusion and clutter in a spiritual way.

When that Gospel enters our hearts it’s not food going into our ‘guts’ our belly, our stomach, that’s the food we need, but the good spiritual food of Jesus’ good news that himself our Saviour as finally come to rescue us, some 2,000 odd years ago and yet even more alive in his believers due to the great comforter, the Holy Spirit, calming us soothing us and being our daily bread, making us strong, strong enough to help our fellow citizens take a round or two and feed them until they are strong enough to take Jesus’ bread themselves, soon finding themselves ‘hooked’ on helping others, our fellow brothers walk together as one live group, what a society, what a beautiful people that is friends. And the best thing about it you and me are part of that ‘happy people’.

  1. Having lived in poor countries (as a missionary and English teacher) I can tell you those poor folks are far richer than most of the folks I have met in first world countries. They have strong family and community relationships, are willing to share their meager food rations with you and are greatly appreciative. I would like to see every teenager go live in one of those countries for a summer and see how much they have changed when they return home.
    Yes they are usually much more receptive to accepting Christ when they see it lived out amongst us that live amongst them.

    1. Praise the Lord! I’ve never been abroad very much my self , however some of our African brothers and sisters in the UK really love the lord Jesus Christ which is evident in their singing, and that’s as close to the third world that I’ve been. May the Gospel live in all souls! Amen.
