Jorge (Right) and Manuel (Left) are good friends. These boys once lived the same life and grew up together in the same children’s home. Sadly their lives are now worlds apart. Today Jorge is ministering to Manuel who is still living on the streets. Unlike us, Jorge knows exactly what position Manuel is in and how he is feeling, because he himself has been there. He gets it! Jorge has beaten the streets and is now using his past hurts to effectively help those who are in the position he once was in.
‘Many have ministered effectively to hurting people because they have triumphed over their own hurts.’
Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk”
It is tough to help someone who doesn’t want to be helped! But the most important thing is to not give up on them, because if we give up then all hope is lost. One day they may see the potential that we see in them and pick up their mat and walk away from the streets…
