As Jesus calls us to meet people in their places of deep pain, loss, and grief, as he sends us as his representatives to those places, we are confronted with some real challenges. What do we say? What can we do? How will it be helpful? How can we keep it from being awkward.
It’s often more than we can handle – but with some love, courage, and preparation, we can move into those places and represent Jesus well. Moreover, if we go as he sends us, we go to places where we are more likely to enjoy the great privilege of seeing Jesus at work.
This is the second message in a series on helping people in places of pain. This one is very practical and was the Sunday Message sent out to Love First Coast on Feb 21, 2021. It’s about 11 minutes long.
