Outraged

The email’s subject line said, “YOU SHOULD BE OUTRAGED.”
1200 Christians have been killed in Nigeria.
But to be honest, I wasn’t outraged.
Anger did not fill me. Tears did not start streaming down my face.
Even writing a post about it seemed more laborious than anything.

This is my fault, though. Jesus doesn’t kill our joy with religious tasks.
He doesn’t demand works—“or else.”
It’s me. Being legalistic. Again.

So now, I write to you:
Please pray for those this blog is about and dedicated for.
The families of the 1200 innocent Christians in Nigeria who were slaughtered,
and the countless more that are in terrorist captivity.

And please pray for me, too,
that I would be filled anew and afresh with love and passion
for these people.
That it wouldn’t be a chore, but an honor;
A crime that makes me outraged.

Do you know Jesus?

Jesus came to earth to do what no one else could: save humanity from hell. Learn more about Jesus and what He has done for humanity, here.

Please pray for…

  • Nigeria and its surrounding nations, that they would turn to Jesus during this time.
  • For those in captivity, that they would be freed soon.
  • That those experiencing captivity would come to know Jesus, even in their pain.

Thank you all for reading and praying! It makes such a huge difference. Have a blessed day!
