Ask your neighbor or coworker to list the “top ten” sins, and you will probably hear a version of the Ten Commandments. Murder, stealing, lying and adultery would probably head the list.
But when God revealed to the prophet Amos that He was about to bring judgment upon His people, He cited Israel’s treatment of the poor as cause for punishment. In startling imagery, God said Israel had “trampled” the needy and cheated the poor. The poor, the victims of Israel’s greed and exploitation, had no recourse but to appeal to God. And God listened.
In the New Testament, Jesus repeatedly takes up the often-overlooked cause of the poor. When Jesus preached in the synagogue in Luke 4:16–21, the prophecy He chose to read to reveal who He was came from Isaiah 61:1–2: “The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to proclaim good news to the poor.” When Jesus described final judgment in Matthew 25:31–46, He evaluated how well people cared for the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the needy and the imprisoned. Jesus so identifies with the poor in this passage that He says that the good deeds done to the “least of these” were counted as being done to Him!
How does the way you live reveal your concern for the poor? Are the poor an afterthought? A nuisance? A perplexing problem you’ve quit trying to solve? For many of us, Amos’s message challenges us to serve the poverty stricken in ways besides simply giving money. Volunteering in a food kitchen or rescue mission may be the first step to helping poor people with their immediate needs. Working directly with people who are poor helps us to put names and faces on poverty. When we do that, we can no longer objectify and ignore the needy. But are there ways to take our compassion one step further? How can we speak up to make sure the poor aren’t exploited? How can we work to make sure our institutions don’t make the problem worse? How can we vote for policies and practices that are equitable?
It is God’s desire that we be willing to share what we have with those in need and help the poor whenever we can. When we do, our hearts beat in time with His.
1. What are your assumptions about why someone might be poor?
2. Have you ever been without what you needed to live? What did you do?
3. Why do you think God identifies Himself with the poor? What does that tell you about His character?

July 18, 2014 @ 8:30 p.m. at Wesley Methodist Church Klang with Major Geoff & Lyn Freind
In January 2009 while holidaying in Busselton, Western Australia Geoff
was prompted by God to start writing the stories that had impacted his life and ministry. His first book “Enjoy the Journey” has become a best seller and has raised more than $100,000.00 to support The Salvation Army Chikankata hospital in Zambia and The Salvation Army Howard hospital in Zimbabwe. His second book, “A Great Journey” has also impacted thousands of readers and continues to impact around the world.
Geoff has recently published his new book which he has called “Thank
you for the Journey” and this book will definitely become a best seller.
God’s anointing is on Geoff’s ministry and in his new book he writes about his amazing journey to Zambia when he went to work at the Chikankata Hospital in Zambia.
Hundreds of people around the world have been impacted by Geoff’s
books and many have come to faith in Jesus Christ. Geoff will share some of these amazing stories when he delivers a powerful message of how God has blessed his ministry.
The first time I met Major Geoff Freind, I came to see that he is a true man of God and his messages were a must hear for anyone who wanted to be an agent of change and bring revival into their own personal life. Listening to him speak gave me the enthusiasm to want to read his books and as you read page after page from his inspiring books they become a great stimulus to help you to move from where you are to where you want to be in your relationship with God. His books have brought light to hundreds of people in Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe who had lived their lives in darkness. The pages of his books have brought hope to the hopeless, encouragement to the discouraged and salvation to the lost.
Recently, I was honoured to be part of a mission team which had travelled to Zambia from Australia under the leadership of Major Freind. It was my privileged to transport the mission team from one place to another as Major Freind ministered the Good News of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to many different places in the Zambia Territory. Major Freind would speak at Lusaka, Chikankata and Livingstone. His preaching and teaching was very powerful and many souls were won to Jesus Christ. Many patients at Chikankata mission hospital were healed with the power of the Holy Spirit and broken marriages were restored. His visit brought revival to The Salvation Army in Zambia and all those people he spoke to will never be the same again.
Personally, I have been encouraged through reading his book A Great Journey which has been a great encouragement in my own journey. I really did love every bit of this book. I learnt from the pages of this book to rely on the sovereignty of God in everything that I do. I was reminded again that it is important for every believer to seek the Kingdom of God first and the rest of the things in life will follow. The chapter in this book on When God Waters the Seed, Amazing Things Happen rekindled my trust in God in a very powerful way at a time when I needed.
Let’s ask: What do these words, ”Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord,” REALLY mean? Well, if I say, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord,” I am voluntarily, and fully, embracing the coming of, and the presence of, Jesus Christ in my life. I am proclaiming Him LORD OF ME. I am saying “Come Lord Jesus, and bring to pass YOUR will, and YOUR Kingdom, to the complete disregard of ME. Do it YOUR way.” I am telling Jesus I no longer want a say-so. Rather, I just want HIM.
The vital thing to see here is that for these words to be real, they must be a voluntary expression of my heart’s desire for God to come and do His will to His glory. This isn’t a religious exercise. It’s isn’t me saying what I think God wants to hear. It isn’t obedience under threat of punishment. Rather, it is actually me ASKING God to come – REALLY asking Him because I truly WANT Him. It is me praising the fact that He will. To say, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord,” means that I am celebrating and rejoicing in the fact that Jesus will come into my life on a new level, and bring everything about me into conformity with His will.
If we really mean it when we celebrate the coming of Jesus in our personal lives, than when things do NOT turn out as we expect, we will face that fact, and STILL embrace Him. But if our hopes and commitment are not really upon Christ, but upon something we expect from Him, then when things take a different course, we will take a different course. Jesus stated over and over that to follow Him means we must face what the disciples faced – the Cross. The will of God must always go through the Cross, and to us losing our lives in order to find His.
Jesus did not come to be a KING – then. He came to DIE as the Passover Lamb. Today, He DOES rule as KING in those who would accept Him as such. But we can only accept Him as King over us personally, if we first lose over lives to Him. So we find that in each life today, this entire scene and principle is being worked out.
God wants us to proclaim, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” But He wants to bring us to the place where we REALLY mean it. We will only really mean it if wrapped up in that celebration is the voluntary losing of our lives in order to find His. And guess what? If we do mean it, God really means it. Jesus will come as Lord into our lives in new and greater ways. And long with Him, we will be BLESSED.
