God bless you!
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.
Sunday, (Oct 19) – Pray that we will not get so wrapped up in our own lives that we have not taken the time to consider the poor and needy. Pray that we will not be so caught up with our own needs that we do not feel the compassion we should have for those in need. Pray that we will take seriously God’s cry for us to help the poor and needy. Pray that God will show us ways to help those that are less fortunate – whether it be volunteering in practical ways (e.g. in Hot Kitchen, Orang Asli, etc.), praying for them, or giving generously towards ministries for the poor and needy. Pray that as we serve God through ministering to the poor, we will come to a closer understanding of God’s heart for those in need.
Monday, (Oct 20) – Praise God that the 6 young adults of the Logos Hope Challenge Team have arrived safely to Klang. Pray for good health for them, and that they will adapt well to our climate, the Malaysian culture and food. Pray for wisdom and strength upon them as they get involved in the various ministries in our church, and that they will receive much joy and fulfillment as they bless the people in our church and community. Pray for journey mercies for them as they travel around Klang. Pray that they will connect and bond well with the church family – from the children to the senior adults.
Tuesday, (Oct 21) – Tomorrow will be Deepavali as the Hindus celebrate the “festival of lights”. Pray that as Christians visit their Hindu friends, God will open up opportunities for the Christians to share about the true Light of the world, and that many will see and recognise Jesus as the Light of the World. Pray for journey mercies as many Malaysians will be travelling during this festive season.
Wednesday, (Oct 22) – Pray for the Nation: More Malaysians (from all walks of life, including schoolchildren) are being lured to join the ISIS movement abroad. Pray that ISIS militant recruiters in the country will be caught. Pray that God will protect Malaysians from being brainwashed by the ideology of this militant movement, and that the government will be able to put a stop to these terrorist groups’ recruitment drives. Pray also that Malaysians working or studying in the Middle East will not be influenced to become ISIS fighters.
Thursday, (Oct 23) – Pray for the World: Pray for wisdom and the fear of God to fill the heart of the new Egyptian President as he leads Egypt in a very difficult time. Pray that he may surround himself with sincere advisors so that the entire Egyptian administration may sincerely work for the good of the Egyptian people in an era of economic, political and social crisis. Pray that the Holy Spirit will empower all the churches in the nation to stand strong through the storms and continue to testify about the redeeming work of Christ to the entire Egyptian nation.
Friday, (Oct 24) – Pray for the Methodist Church: The Sarawak Iban Annual Conference (SIAC) is appealing for funds for its building project in Sibu Jaya in Sarawak. The estimated cost is RM1.5 million. Pray that the target will be collected. Pray for Rev Steward Damat, the President of SIAC, for the Lord’s leading upon him at the helm. Pray also for God to pour a mighty spirit of renewal and revival upon the Iban churches in Sarawak.
Saturday, (Oct 25) – 39 of our church members and 3 friends will be going by bus for an overnight trip to Sitiawan from tomorrow to Monday (October 26-27, 2014). Pray for the bus driver to be alert and careful as the bus will be travelling by the coastal road to Sitiawan, and for journey mercies throughout the trip. Pray for protection and good health for the people, that the planned itinerary will flow smoothly, and there will not be any stomach upsets / food poisoning. Pray for good bonding and fellowship among all the people, and there will be many opportunities to share about the goodness of God, especially to the 3 friends.
