Living a Normal Christian Life Toward Others

Bible Verses

Rom 12:9 Let love be without hypocrisy... (10) Love one another warmly in brotherly love; take the lead in showing honor one to another. (13) Contribute to the needs of the saints; pursue hospitality. (15) Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep. (16) Be of the same mind toward one another, not setting your mind on the high things but going along with the lowly; do not be wise in yourselves.

Words of Ministry

In living a normal life, we firstly should have love toward others. In the matter of showing honor we must move quickly and be the first one to show honor to others. Furthermore, we need to communicate to the needs of the saints and to pursue hospitality. We must be transformed before we can rejoice and weep with others. Some people were born in such a way that they are unable to weep or to rejoice. Regardless of how happy or joyful you are, they remain expressionless, resembling the statue of Mary at the entrance of a Catholic church, which never changes its expression. Some brothers and sisters are like this. They do not know how to rejoice or to weep with others; they seem to be stones without human affection. However, the church life needs emotional people. We all must be properly emotional and full of expression. I would like to have a face that can express all my emotions properly and adequately. We cannot put together people with stone faces and call it the church life; we must be living stones, stones full of affection. We must learn to rejoice and to weep with others.
