How to Live a Life of Good Deeds | Life with Gwen and Joe

Hey everybody! Welcome to Life With Gwen and Joe, and we have a very special show today And what’s our show about? It’s about doing good

In fact it’s about good deeds So hang in there and watch this It’s good to be good It’s good to be kind Life With God is so good So come join us in this fun life where we put God in the center of everything Let’s talk about good deeds Let’s see, what does God have to say about what He expects from us doing good deeds for others

Oh, I mean the scriptures are full of it How can you overlook it that people think about “that’s a work” or whatever, and I’m sitting there going, you better believe it, like we get to do good and work for God and His Kingdom, and that’s what we’ll be doing upstairs anyway So think about how it makes you feel Think about how, you know, how do you feel after doing something good for someone? That’s a truly fulfilling thing, to know that you went out of your way and did some selfless act for another person, and God talks in the Bible, I mean Jesus talked about treating your neighbor as though you would have them treat you So doing acts like that ultimately is very, it’s just very gratifying, to know that you are giving of yourself

Yeah, did you, you knowI did Brownie Scouts Did you do any of that? I did Brownie Scouts too

I actually didn’t go past being a Brownie Scout and sold the cookies and that kind of stuff You know, that was part of being a Brownie Scout—you go and do something good So even the world will talk aboutI mean, you’ve got the Peace Corp, you’ve got so many different things in the world where everyone in the world applauds doing good deeds And so, why not all of us get behind that and teach it to our children From Titus 3:8 it says: Romans 2:7 I mean it’s persistence I mean there are so many more, I mean, scriptures, but he’s asking us to: and then he talks about for salvation, doing good And then so we have a lot of ministries In fact all the ministries, I would say that we’ve got, are about doing goodand one of them is the Prison Ministry Let’s talk about the Prison Ministry for a minute because the Remnant has an amazing prison ministry And you know, these prisoners in these prisons, I know that the connotation there is that these guys deserve to be there, and they have committed crimes and all that, but the prison conditions are such that it is very hard for these prisoners, once they’ve done their sentences, to come out of those places with any true hope about life, with any kick-start back into the world And to reach out to these guys who are there—they are hungry for human connection, for outside connection

So this church has been so amazing in doing that I am always really inspired to see all the people involved in that, reaching out to these guys in prison I can tell you it’s one of my most fulfilling times, and watching the humility of these men is second to none I mean, it was inspiring to me That’s the message I want to get across, is that the irony in God is calling us to do good is that we are more blessed from doing that good than the good that we do! So it’s truly, it’s for us

It’s inspirational Are you bored? Are you down? Are you unconcerned? Then here’s the way to do it Get up and go do good, and then you’ll be inspired These guys are so humble I mean they have hurt so much

God is using it to help people to turn toward Him To see that footage of you talking with these men, praying with these men and their reaction to you is just very, very inspirational It really breaks your heart to see how broken down these men get in prison, and for you to show up and feed them Spirit and just feed them hope and It’s just an amazing thing And there is a very big reward for people who can do stuff like that for these men That’s what all these, these guys on the Prison Teams say They say there is nothing like it They wouldn’t

they wouldn’t quit it for anything because they are getting more out of it These guys travel for thousands of miles just to go teach classes and teach them about how to get this relationship with God And these people that do this are just

talking about true saints! I mean, you’ve got Linda Hardin, you’ve got Jodi, you’ve got the MacPhersons and Durville, yeah, all these guys, they are amazing And there is another whole group that does a mailout They do fifteen hundred foldouts and mailouts a week

So these guys are amazing Out of ten states in the US and Canada, right? Yeah, we’re in ten states The prison ministry has expanded to ten states

And I also wanted to mention that the Remnant received the Faith Based Program of the Year award from the prison system for reaching out to these prisoners and showing them love and keeping in touch with them and giving them hope and spreading the gospel to them So that’s a beautiful thing It is beautiful I also want to mention the Eikenberrys, also the Abelts, Brenda I mean some of these people specifically visit like Joseph Smith and Sonya

You know, what breaks our heart is that there are situations where there are people there that are innocent and been falsely accused It’s something that people can do to others It’s always been around – the Bible talks about falsely accusing and how if somebody falsely accuses someone, they are not on their way to Heaven I mean that just a big no-no, and I see why now because it is so hard But then, you know, Paul talks about going in there and never neglecting visiting those in prison, those Saints in prison

So it’s beautiful To think that somebody would be falsely accused and put into that environment without ever having committed the crime that they are accused of is Breaks my heart

Because the conditions are just scary I don’t think anybody can fathom leading the lifestyle that they know and being put into the prison system It is not a good time, and we pray for those guys We do We do

Now Jesus talked aboutlook at his life He set the example

We’re to follow in his footsteps And this is what his days look like Alright, so we could speak from Acts It says: Wow! And so it’s exciting to know that we are doing what Jesus did That’s right

That’s right His acts, to think that Jesus was put on this earth to go around doing that and how we’re supposed to kind of be Christ-like and kind of be of that mind set is an amazing thing It really requires a special understanding of what our true intentions are, what God expects of us And you’ve got to really reach down deep to get to that place because you know, in our daily lives we get caught up and we tend not to think about the needy But that’s really what we’re supposed to do

Exactly And then it makes us feel betterand not just those you love

I mean, it talks about in the Bible that anybody can love the lovely or love giving something to someone who is going to give back to you, like it’s reciprocal, but with the type of love that Jesus and God is asking to see is in our heart Would we do good even if we get nothing in return? So, you know, that’s where the true test comes in So doing good and And not expecting anything back Not to become weary Right In Galatians: Let’s don’t give up Let’s keep going

And we will reap a harvest All the different ministries out there, from counsel, doing things with those that are sick, those that are aged A lot of needs right there in those last few years of life People are doing good with helping with weddings They are helping with children, which is huge They are helping with assemblies

They are helping with music We’ve got so many people doing beautiful things The Remnant is an amazing place, and I am so proud of everybody, the way they reach out to everyone Not just the prison ministry but people that come from out of town, people that have family problems, have marital problems, that have financial problemsyouth-oriented ministryit’s just an amazing thing to watch

It is It’s amazing So, I am excited about it We’re going to leave the show, and we’re going to go make our list of what we’re going to do, to do good things So we want you to join us with that

but thank you for joining us in watching Life With Gwen and Joe! We’re very blessed that you’d spend this time with us Thank you so much, see you soon
