Anyone who sets himself up as “religious” by talking a good game is self-deceived. This kind of religion is hot air and only hot air. Real religion, the kind that passes muster before God the Father, is this: Reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight, and guard against corruption from the godless world. (Jam 1:26)
When I think of the loveless and homeless I remember the time I accompanied my friend Les Mitchell to Madrid to witness the awesome mission works of REMAR.
These beautiful people reach out to lost drug addicts with such effect that they have a success rate of over 60%!
I saw for myself how a freed addict of only 1 or 2 weeks would humbly take their place and sit alongside another suffering addict throughout their cold turkey trials.
These trials could last many excruciating days and the freed addict would give their all to help to cleanse and feed them, all the time offering prayers that they themselves had only recently benefited from.
Lord, help us to humbly work with Your Holy Spirit today in the harvest field of true religion. Amen ❤️
