3 Extreme ways to help others

“I believe He wants us to love others so much that we go to extremes to help them.”

– Francis Chan

A GENEROUS LOVE

Years ago, I remember hearing a pastor saying, “Never resist a generous impulse.” On one occasion he was standing behind a single mother of 3 and she was in tears while searching for enough change to pay her grocery bill, so the pastor had a generous impulse. He handed the cashier a twenty dollar bill, and the woman looked at him and said, “Thank you” while tears were streaming down her face. God wants us to love others in such an extreme way that we make a difference in the world.

A RADICAL LOVE

What does a radical love look like? How about this; Christ died for the weak and ungodly (us) (Rom 5:6), Christ died for the unrighteous (us) (Rom 5:7), Christ died for sinners (us) Rom 5:8), and Christ died for the enemies of God (us) (Rom 5:10), so helping others should not depend on their goodness, but upon the goodness of God.

Justification by faith

What does it mean to be justified by faith?

That is a central question that Paul answers in Romans. The book of Romans begins by declaring all men to be sinners and deserving the wrath of God (1:18-3:20). Paul then begins to describe the good news of Jesus Christ that man can be justified before God by faith in Jesus Christ (3:21-4:25).

The book of Romans begins by declaring all men to be sinners and deserving the wrath of God (1:18-3:20). Paul then begins to describe the good news of Jesus Christ that man can be justified before God by faith in Jesus Christ (3:21-4:25). The next three chapters (5-8) of Romans unpack rich implications of justification by faith. The structure of those chapters is outlined and illustrated below, and serve to give the big picture argument of Romans 5-8:*
