Bible Reading: John 3: 16-18

Memory VerseFor God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (NKJV)

A number of girls lived in a building. They only lived to be picked up by men. One day, the landlord evicted all of them. Their properties were thrown out. All the girls found somewhere else to relocate, except one. She had no place to go. She kept her belongings on a neighbor’s corridor, and on nights that she was home, she’d sleep there… and that was on most nights. All tenants in the building met to plan how to put her and her belongings out. Surprisingly, one tenant, a woman was against the idea. She asked, “What would you all do if this girl was your daughter, sister or relative?” She told them that this girl and her friends have, no doubt made wrong choices. But she reminded them that they too, at some points in their past had also made wrong choices but God still held us close to His heart and saved us.

She cautioned them as Christians to CONSIDER WHAT JESUS WOULD DO. Everyone was quiet but none suggested any way to help the now homeless lady. Later on, the same woman who defended her at the tenant meeting had a talk with her husband. They agreed to house the girl in their moderate apartment. They invited the girl into their home and told her she could stay with them. The homeless girl was shocked when the woman said to her, “We know what you do for a living. And you are free to go out at night and come back the next day if that’s what you choose to do. Feel free to eat our food. Use the other bedroom. It is yours as long as you live here. Live like one of us. We did not bring you in to judge you. But we will continue to pray for you.

Hopefully, the Spirit of God will talk to you in His own time.” The girl was dumbfounded. And she cried. At night, she stayed at home. Going out to look for men gradually became a thing of her past. She would join the family for morning devotion and go to church with them on Sundays. One day, this woman told her of her husband’s decision to pay for her registration into a university. The lady gained admission into a university. She graduated on top of her class and got a good job.  But even before she graduated, she got a university grant for outstanding performance, she also started a legitimate business of her own. Today, when you enter her office, she has this woman and her husband’s photo on the wall behind her desk. The photo has the inscription, “My parents,’ the only Christians I know”. Again, let me ask the question: What is Agape love?

Quote: Can someone say, “I met a true believer in you?”

Prophetic Decree: Receive the love of Christ shed abroad in your heart, in Jesus name.

1. The God of love, I thank You.
