Mark 10:15

Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.

If the church would carry some of the burden of those facing difficulties the Beabled would soon be healed. By helping carry the load of the lesser parts we help them work right so together we can be complete. The ministries that exist inside our churches to help the Beabled are few and far between they are virtually invisible. This is a great first step and there’s no despising humble beginnings but Beabled ministry can be much more. The disability cannot be the focus; the Beabled need to be seen for the part we play in the church. Some churches offer a room where disabled and caregivers can go to watch church in private. Loud noises affect some disabilities so this is good to offer but after the music these families need fellowship with others. We cannot consider others above or selves or be complete if we are missing parts. It’s not good for kids or the learning challenged to bored in the service so to train them right a class might be available where they can learn and fellowship. Everything done to include the Beabled is one step closer to us being complete. A Beabled church could have a special class for those with learning needs where they could benefit from a personalized message if they’re to old or unable to be in children’s ministry. The people in the ministry would care for the individual needs during church so their gift can develop and the one being helped would benefit from the love of others (1 Corinthians 12:28). Many helpers would be caregivers but there would be fellowship with others helping or needing help. Some disabled children are far less disruptive than able bodied children.

For that reason whenever possible children with needs should be included in children’s ministry. Fellowship needs to be taught at a young age. The sooner children learn to do good to all people the better it will be in future churches (Galatians 6:10). For Beabled children there could be an IEP (Individualized Education Program) equivalent to see to their needs and spiritual growth. Some kids are caring, have gifts of healing and a desire to help others. The children with needs would help bring those gifts out at an earlier age. Children are eager to learn and trying to figure out who they will be. What better time for them to learn their gifts and use them to build others in the class with needs (1 Corinthians 14:12). Putting the Beabled child with healthy children would be the perfect recipe for the miraculous because of their great faith. Children believe in God without a second thought if we won’t be like a child it’ll be hard to enter the Kingdom. Jesus welcomed kids to teach us about blind faith and if faith needs action that’s just the beginning of what kids can show us. If we welcome them we welcome Him. Remember the least of them is the greatest so to make them great the body becomes greater (Luke 9:48). To facilitate this there would be a Beabled aide in the room to watch out for children with needs. It might mean taking a Sunday to teach the kids why Johnny doesn’t talk or why Tommy can’t walk. We must find ways to welcome kids especially those with needs because what we do to the least little one we do to the Lord (Matthew 25:40). Kids can be mean sometimes but with the right presentation the Beabled might be the coolest kid in the room. To build our church we must build who seems least. By welcoming these kids we do right to God Himself.

We will be expanding the reach of Tuesdays Torch to shine our light so others can see it and be saved. We pray the words of this Tuesdays Torch and every Torch will sink into the hearts and minds of readers. Please feel free to forward The Torch to others so we can encourage them with its message. If there are any churches or ministries that could benefit from the sharing Tuesdays Torch please let us know so together we can spread the light into dark places. We pray the Lord will continue touching every reader. All of what Christ did He did so we would believe. He told us not to believe because of what He said but in what He did (John 14:11). Every Tuesdays Torch we talk a little more about what He did and talk about what He is still doing. The best thing God has ever done was sending us His Son so we could be saved (John 3:16). If anyone is not a believer our prayer is that they will meet the Lord. If anyone wants to make Jesus Christ their Savior send a message to: tuesdaystorch@gmail.com and we will help it happen. Look out for next Tuesdays Torch by email or find it on Facebook by searching Tuesdays Torch. Thanks and God Bless!

No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. Luke 8:16

Hebrews 10:24

And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

The Beabled need to find their place in our churches so they can fit in and use the gifts God has blessed them with. To make this happen our churches need to learn how to help carry the burden of those with special needs. We do that by sharing our knowledge with others so we can grow together. There should not be any emphasis taken off the importance of divine healing but some churches need a better understanding of the ones needing it. This comes through instruction and having people in the church who feel a call to help others with various needs. The Beabled agent would reach out to disabled people in the church and help by answering questions and seeing to our needs. Churches have many helps ministries, ushers, parking people, prayer groups and hospitality. All these can help with an agent to coordinate them with the soon Beabled individuals. Assuming the small faith or wondering what the Beabled need is no help. Instead help carry our burden so people will see faith in action and come to the Lord. This is a duty of the church where there is love there will be action to fulfill the law of love. The less desirable members need special attention to be made to function properly. When they grow we grow stronger as one and the Beabled will become the healed. Our churches need to work toward being complete and that can only be done when all the parts work together. Some churches have groups and ministries to help out the disabled but they are very few and almost invisible. The church with these types of ministries has taken an extra step in the right direction but a Beabled ministry should be so much more. There needs to be a revolution in the way the disabled do church and are perceived to better Beabled and to complete the body we belong to.

We cannot focus on the temporal circumstance of the disability but instead on what is eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18). The Beabled are a part of the church body and without us being involved in the church it cannot be complete. One ministry is a private room for the disabled and their families but we all need to fellowship with others in the church. We should not despise humble beginnings because it is a high position (James 1:9). This ministry outreach is great but it could be just a part of how the Beabled do church. Further distancing ourselves from others in the body will not help any of us grow. There can be so much gained from fellowship and not doing so could be detrimental for the Beabled fitting in. In the church we are supposed to consider one another to provoke love and good works. If we forsake assembling together no one can consider us and we can consider no one else (Hebrews 10:24-25). Only by being complete can we be there to exhort each other the way we should. Some separation maybe necessary for certain parts of the service but caregivers and the Beabled need fellowship for us to be complete. For certain needs a simpler praise and worship is okay but caregivers and the Beabled need fellowship in a format to help them grow. It’s not good to bore children with what is hard for them to comprehend making church a bad experience. It is good to have a fellowship where they can grow as long as others are involved with our lives (Ephesians 6:4). Everything done to help us be the Beabled is part of the bigger picture to complete us in the church. As we become complete what is in part disappears and we learn to follow the passion inside us (1 Corinthians 13:9-10).

We will be expanding the reach of Tuesdays Torch to shine our light so others can see it and be saved. We pray the words of this Tuesdays Torch and every Torch will sink into the hearts and minds of readers. Please feel free to forward The Torch to others so we can encourage them with its message.

Romans 15:14

I myself am convinced, my brothers and sisters, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with knowledge and competent to instruct one another.

Relying on others is part of the Beabled finding the place we fit in while our helpers grow in their giftto. All believers wish to find the place where God has called them to fit in His body. This is true for the Beabled we want to fit in and not feel condemned for not being healed. Church should be where the Beabled are enabled not in the ways of the world. We are not our disability but parts of the body with desires and gifts from God to share with others. Believers should not be discouraged if healing takes time and think less of the Beabled. Sometimes we may not necessarily be looking for typical laying on of hands when the Spirit is doing other things. God choses what seems weaker to shame the proud or inspire others to do good with their own talents. When our needs remain for a time there may be a reason for it. God may need us for a certain time of glory or to bring out the gifts in others. There is glory in suffering it strengthens us and helps our hope in God’s love. The Beabled might be looking for a friend, a word from the Lord or a helping hand. Building the Beabled in this way brings healing and shows us the love of God. Remember the interests of the Spirit and what He is doing in people it maybe isn’t what some may think. The Beabled are just trying to fit in our churches if God is in us He will help us down the right path. The church must follow God in reaching out to the Beabled. This starts with proper education in handling special needs and learning to carry some of the burden with them. Believers and the Beabled have goodness in them. Together we can increase in knowledge by instructing each other in what we know and what God has showed us.

The church should not take the emphasis off of healing but there needs to be a Beabled outreach so we can be all God wants us to be until healing is complete. By instructing those who have learned so much about the Lord they increase in their learning as we share knowledge (Proverbs 9:9). In our churches there could be a representative who has the desire and wants to help people with different limitations so we feel accepted in the church. The Beabled agent would reach out to disabled people and our families; by answering questions, helping see to our needs and helping us reach our spiritual goals. In seeing to our needs, believers are pleasing their neighbor by building us up when we are down (Romans 15:2). Many churches are well on their way to making this happen with parking staff, ushers and hospitality outreach ministries. Beabled agents would help coordinate the Beabled with these ministries so we would know who they are and how they can help. Wondering about what is wrong, saying negative things or making assumptions is of no benefit to the Beabled. Believers should instead be open and willing to help the Beabled to build us up so those observing may see and listen the spoken word of the Lord (Ephesians 4:29). The church has the duty to help carry the burdens of others to fulfill the law of Christ. The members of the body with special needs need special care and attention to function in the right way (1 Corinthians 12:23). When one part of the body suffers all the parts suffer so in building the Beabled the whole body grows stronger (1 Corinthians 12:26). By being there for the disabled we learn the love of God, are Beabled and healing begins on day one in that church.

We will be expanding the reach of Tuesdays Torch to shine our light so others can see it and be saved. We pray the words of this Tuesdays Torch and every Torch will sink into the hearts and minds of readers. Please feel free to forward The Torch to others so we can encourage them with its message.
