(KJV.) HEBREWS 13:1-3
(1) Let brotherly love continue.
(2) Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
(3) Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.
Brethren, let us love one another, for love is of our Father; if we claim to love other people; then, we will show our love for them in what we do, and how we behave towards them; many times, we delay our own blessings by our decisions, actions and behaviors towards one another; how many times, have we refused to help others in need, because of one reason or the other?, when we are capable to help them; this is a point to ponder on!; regardless of what others say about us, or may have done to tarnish our reputations, if they come to us for help, let us lay aside bitterness, grudges and malices, and revenge not ourselves; vengeance belong to Jesus Christ; but endeavor to help them; per book of Roman 12:20: "Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head."; through our positive actions, we will win the battle over them; therefore, let us not be overwhelm with their bad deeds, but be overcomers with kindly tenderly love, goodness and mercies of our Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Sometimes, through our good works we have touched the heart of Jesus Christ, or encountered with an angel of the Lord; case in point, one afternoon, Abraham sat at the entrance of his tent, he lifted up his eyes, instantly, he saw three men standing by him; what would we do?; this is what Abraham did, when he saw them, he ran to meet them, bow himself down to the ground and said; "My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant..; Genesis 18: the question here is; how did Abraham know that these men are spirits of our Father?; Abraham was in spirit himself; therefore, let us be in spirit at all times to discern miraculous phenomenons of Jesus Christ; and determine when doors of blessings are open for our destines: after he greeted them, he hurried back into the tent, said to Sarah, prepared quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth, and Abraham ran into the herd, brought back a tender, good calf, gave it to his servants to prepare it, set a table before the angels, stood by them while they ate; first of all, the men did not asked Abraham for food, but he knew that they might be hungry and fed them; the lesson here is, though the angels did not ask Abraham for food, he knew that they may be tired and hungry walking through the desert; therefore, he made them comfortable under his tent, gave them food to eat and water to drink; Abraham entertain our Father unaware; therefore, if we can afford to help people we know or do not know, who maybe in difficult situations; let us not wait until they cry out for help, before we endeavor to help them; if we love one another as ourselves, we will also help one another, as we would like others to help us in times of difficulties; our Father loved us, he gave his only begotten Son; therefore, let us endeavor to help one another as we would expect to be helped by others: after the angels finish eating, they asked for Sarah, Abraham's wife; pronounced covenanted blessings upon her, saying, ...I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son." Genesis 18:10: see!; whenever we do goodwill towards others, no matter what we do, there are always physical or spiritual blessings after our gestures; in this case, eventually, Isaac was born, and covenanted blessings of Abraham was fulfill forevermore.
Also, despite facts that some of our brother's and sister's are incarcerated or in spiritual bondage of the enemy; let us not forget to pray, do as much as we can to reach out, minister kingdom words of our Father to them, do goodwill towards them; this is what Jesus did for humanity when he came to the earth, minister kingdom words of the our Father, suffered, died on the cross, rose up again from the death, ascended into heavenly places, seated on the right hand of our Father, pleading our cases before him: let us not to forget about other believers who are in captivities, suffering persecutions for righteousness sake, they are our brothers and sisters in the body of Jesus Christ; therefore, let us remember them in our prayers; when Peter was imprisoned, prayers was made without ceasing in the church to our Father; an angel was sent to released him from prison, Peter's chains fell off and was freed; refer to Acts 2: therefore prayer works, let us pray for the welfare of one another in the faith of his righteousness and for world darkness.
Dearly beloved, let us continue to love and care for one another; for, this is the will of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
