Overseer of God’s Remnant Assembly Akintayo Emmanuel Discusses the Right Way to Help Others

When it comes to helping others, many people struggle to know with clarity and certainty when, how, where, why, and who to help. As a result, they often end up helping those that they shouldn’t, while they neglect to help those who they should.

Thankfully and mercifully, the Bible sheds illuminating light on this essential subject and points out that true, authentic helping is rooted in three pillars: selflessness, service, and sacrifice. Each of these is commented on below by Akintayo Emmanuel, the Overseer God’s Remnant Assembly.

Selflessness

Commented Akintayo Emmanuel, who in addition his calling with God’s Remnant Assembly also serves as President of Hear the Lord Ministries, we can fool others, and we can fool ourselves, but we can never fool the Lord. He knows what is in our hearts even better than we do. As such, when we help others, we must be clear about our motives and intentions. We must confirm that we are an instrument of the Lord and carrying out His divine plan, rather than carrying out our private agenda to make ourselves feel superior and better than others.

Service

According to Akintayo Emmanuel, we must pray for those who we help so that they can solve their problems and achieve their goals. But we must not stop at mere words or thoughts. We must demonstrate our help in some way. We must activate our intentions, or else they cannot bear fruit.

Sacrifice

Akintayo Emmanuel claims that we should be willing to help others in an ethical and appropriate manner even when it is inconvenient to us. When we feel weary or disinterested in helping others, we should see this as a wake-up call to deepen and re-affirm our faith and commitment to the Lord.
