Our New Covenant

• When we help (or do not help) our fellow Christians who are hungry, naked, sick, or imprisoned, we are helping (or not helping) Jesus. Matthew 25:31-46

• The foremost command of Jesus our Lord was that we love each other, and lay down our lives for each other. John 13:34-35; John 15:12-14, 17

• The Law of Christ is fulfilled when Christians: “carry each other’s burdens.” Galatians 6:2

• Love of Christians for one other is defined by the Apostle John as sharing material possessions with other Christians who are in need. 1 John 3:16-19

• Helping Christians in need is defined by the Apostle Paul as “the proof of our love,” and proof of our obedience to the gospel. 2 Cor. 8:13

• Suggested reading - all of Chapters 8 and 9 of 2 Corinthians.

• Our love for each other is the mission strategy of the Lord. John 13:35

• We are commanded to “love not just with word and tongue, but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 16-19

• If we have brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ who are without clothes and daily food, and we wish them well, but do nothing about their needs, our faith is dead. James 2:15, 17

God bless you...your brother Ravi Kumar Saripalli
“This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! 2 Cor. 8:1-; 15
