There have been incredibly tragic things going on around the world… and my question is, what has the world-wide church been doing about it?
This is not to shame the churches where these disastrous things have happened; it is to remind ourselves that as Christians, we belong to one another. We are one.
I came to this conclusion after reading 1 Corithians 16:19:
“The churches in the province of Asia send you greetings. Aquila and Priscilla greet you warmly in the Lord, and so does the church that meets at their house.”
The churches in the province of Asia had never even met the Corinthians, much less been in a place to send greetings. Again, Priscilla and Aquila greeted these people warmly. Churches thousands of miles away from eachother greeted one another with love and warmth!
Can we, as apart of this worldwide Christian Church, do the same, helping our brothers and sisters in need?
I commend those in the Church who have stepped out of their comfort zones and went out to help the many hurting people all over the world right now.
And even if we cannot physically go help these people, we can pray– in fact, it should be the first thing we are doing!
Will you pray with me, here?
“Dear Father God, we come to You on behalf of our brothers and sisters who are hurting all over the world. We pray for Your Comfort, Strength, Wisdom, Guidance, and Protection over them. Please show us how we can practically help. In Jesus’ Name we pray, amen.”
To help Nigerians, you can check out my list of reputable donors here. The Red Cross and Convoy of Hope are also providing practical help for those in pain and tragedy right now. I recommend them (none of my recommendations come from donations or are paid advertisments).
