Leave no one behind, now that is a noble phrase. You commonly hear this phrase when people talk about the military. When you become a soldier, you become part of a family. One thing that knits people together in unity is to leave no one behind. Soldiers do not abandon one of their own. As Christians, we shouldn't do the same either. As Christians, we have a higher calling. Not only do we have a duty to help other Christians, but we have a duty as humans to help all man-kind.
Our responsibility as Christians makes it even more evident that we have a purpose in life. We are tasked with being the hands and feet of Christ. Part of being a body of believers is to leave no one behind. When we are faced with a situation where someone is in need of our help, we should do what we can to help them. In this case, we are not to turn the other cheek, but to be servant leaders. A servant leader is someone that leads in the name of Christ by rolling up their sleeves. More often than not, many Christians find themselves sitting on the sidelines when it comes time to get involved. Their passiveness is duly noted by many people that surround them.
How do we make sure that we leave no one behind?
To leave no one behind, we must be seeking for opportunities to get involved. When we see a brother or sister in Christ struggling, we are to come along-side them. We are not to ignore their plea for help. Instead, we are called to bear each others burdens. This means that their struggles are our struggles. Their pain is our pain. We are in this world together to have an impact on each other and the Kingdom.
Galatians 6:2 NASB Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.
