True Help

Acts 16:9-10 KJV
And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.
And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.

This was a vision given to Paul of the Lord. There is, as far as I know, no specific Macedonian ever encountered who was the literal man of Paul's vision. This vision is between Paul and the Lord and they both interpreted preaching the gospel as a help.

We would do much better should we begin to view the gospel as helpful. It is more helpful than food. It is more helpful than education. It is more helpful than cultural development. It is more helpful than political freedom.

Paul had no money to give.
·       He had no clout with the powers of the world.
·       He had no ins with the workers of social aide.
He and his team had just one thing; the message that Jesus Christ had come, died, and risen again.

That's true help.
