This the Essence of Calvary Love

“If by doing some work which the undiscerning consider ‘not spiritual work’ I can best help others, and I inwardly rebel, thinking it is the spiritual for which I crave, when in truth it is the interesting and exciting, then I know nothing of Calvary love. ~ Amy Carmichael, missionary to India, mother to orphans, and author
While many Christians seek experience, a mountaintop, our Lord demonstrates a different love; one which is quiet, almost unnoticeable. As Jesus Christ washed the feet of his disciples, they were amazed. Such a menial, dirty task. Yet, one which we as believers look on as model of the love of Christ.
Pictured below are children from our Tin Tin Home in Pakistan. Taking care of children, day in and day out – just as done by Amy Carmichael – is not considered exciting. There is no thrilling story, no brave heroism. At least, not the kind we may expect. Yet, to see families freed from slavery living in safety, to teach children who have had no education previously, to give of oneself every day for others….is this not a story of immense eternal value?
Ting Ministries is supporting vulnerable children and families in Pakistan – they need mosquito nets! Children are unable to sleep and at risk of serious illness due to mosquito bites. While this need may seem small, insignificant to some, I suggest it is, in the words of Amy Carmichael, the essence of Calvary love. 1 Corinthians 16:14
