"To visit or to look after" is the same wording used in scripture to describe how God himself visits His people to help them, strengthen them and encourage them. It literally means to visit with the intention to remain with, dwell with, abide with. Jesus left His throne in Heaven and came to earth to be with His people, to dwell with us. Then when He resurrected from the dead He sent His Holy Spirit to dwell within those who trust in Him as their Lord and Savior. As followers of Christ we have the assured hope that when Christ returns for His people on judgement day and establishes the new heavens and the new earth, from that day forward into all of eternity God will literally dwell with His people. Jesus commands us to abide in Him and His love; and He assures us that He will abide with us always. Through Abiding Hearts Ministry we want to reflect the heart of Christ by seeking out the sick and the widowed with a sincere concern for their well being, and with a fervent commitment to visit them, dwell with them, abide with them and care for them in real life one-on-one relationship. Please pray for the people we serve to know more intimately how much God loves them, for them to rest in His presence and for us to represent the love of Christ well as we reach out to them.
