“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. Use hospitality one to another without grudging.” – 1 Peter 4:7-9
As we are seemingly living through the “end of days,” or at least the “beginning of sorrows” from Matthew 24, we need to be even more focused on God’s kingdom.
We must be sober and aware. We must be watchful. Our prayers should be centered on how we can be more effective witnesses with all that is going on.
Charity is a form of benevolence that requires personal sacrifice.
The charity of the Lord Jesus Christ led to His sacrifice on the cross. Likewise, we should have fervent, or extreme, charity toward others.
Christ’s charity covers our sins. We also should not reject others because of their sins, but show them hospitality and kindness.
We Christians should be the leading examples of love, charity, kindness, and hospitality so that we can demonstrate God’s grace through our own lives.
As the world seems to be collapsing around us, we should be lights in the darkness.
This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine.
