Jesus ministered to the needs of people. If we are going to follow in his steps, we must minister to the needs of people as well. That's who Jesus was, therefore, it's who his people ought to be.
What is the Christian response to poverty? I believe that we as a fellowship of disciples of Jesus must do our best to meet the needs of the poor around the world. I believe we need to integrate the healing ministry of Jesus with the preaching and teaching ministry of Jesus. I think we must constantly challenge ourselves in this area by looking at what the scriptures say about it. This is how we deepen convictions in our churches—we look at the Bible. We are to be a people of The Book.
Jesus and the Poor provides 50 practical ways to serve the poor and a quiet time series to gain biblical convictions.
Robert Carrillo, CEO/President, HOPE worldwide says, "If we are to turn the world upside down as did our predecessors, we must show the world the full ministry of Jesus. The disciple earnestly striving to be like Jesus today will find this book deeply helpful and inspiring. As one who grew up poor, I am grateful for someone like Steve being a voice for the impoverished."
