    They will know a Christian by the Love (from Gulfport, MS)

    Hi!

    Here's a really nice story told to me by another member of our church (Linda), upon her return from Mississippi:

    Linda went to Gulfport this past weekend with a group of about 14 people from our church. The mission was to help folks in Gulfport, MS clean up their homes. Linda and the others went with a 42' semi-trailer filled with supplies (water, food, bleach, rags, buckets, etc).

    While there, Linda was helping a family pull up the carpeting in the house, move furniture outside...basically gut the house. The family attended a pentacostal church. The mother wore her hair in a tight bun with a scarf on her head. The daughter was about 10, she also wore her hair tightly wrapped in a bun.

    The daughter asked where Linda was from. Linda told her and the confused young girl asked, "Why did you come all this way? Why are you here, helping us?" Linda simply said it is because it is what God has called us to do.

    The daughter later asked her mom if Linda was from another pentacostal church. Her mom said, "No, she's from a methodist church". The daughter was even more confused, "Is she a Christian?". Mom said yes of course she's a Christian. The daughter asked, "How can you tell, mom, she doesn't wear her hair like us, she doesn't look like us, she doesn't go to the same church as us. How can you tell she's a Christian???"

    Her mom replied, "Honey, you can tell she's a Christian by the love she brings and shows to us."


    Let it be true for all of us, that others can tell we are walking and living in Christ's path, by the LOVE!
