Is this the Gospel?

I think I saw the Gospel tonight at small group.

It wasn’t in the teaching material, it wasn’t in the discussion time and it wasn’t even in prayer.

No, I think I saw it clearly when one the guys reached into his coat pocket and gave his coughing wife a cough drop.

Imagine what it takes to reorient ones self around another person? Imagine what must change before ‘I’ll carry cough drops in my pocket’ becomes the default response to sick spouse.

That’s the kind of change I want in my life.

Peace

  1. Such is the substance of love xx.
    God is indeed in the detail and in the opening of our hearts, minds, eyes and ears to the needs of others.
    He shifts the focus from ‘self’ and enables us to become selfless.
    Such is the substance of love 🙂
