1. Most of us have had no experience of persecution. We have grown up in a world where the Christians are the good guys on the winning side.
However, the values of this world are changing all around us, we are more and more on the back foot.
We see stories from the Muslim world that we don’t understand. They are beyond our comprehension:
A woman is caught not wearing a veil (this item is confronting)
Christians are being bombed (a call for prayer from Pakistan)
How Islamisation works (from the Australian Prayer Network)
Could it happen here? How would we cope?
One of the things Jesus said concerning the last days: Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold (Matt 24:12)
Lord, may we love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us.
2. David Milne has been with a group of committed Christians trialing and learning how to successfully do visitation evangelism. See his initial report. David has asked for a caveat on copying or using this process without contacting him to understand the big picture. He points out that prayer and fasting has preceded this outreach.
3. Most churches will have a program, or links with agencies, to assist with rebuilding in Vanuatu.
Shellharbour Community Church, through their own Vanuatu Assist program, are asking for specific items to fill a shipping container.
