Time to wake up, American Christians

Some things need to be repeated often until Jesus returns and this world as we know it comes to an end and evil is no more.  Until then, the incredible need for ministries like Make Way Partners is one of those things.  Click on the newsletter image to go to the full PDF version, read it, and then decide to make a difference before it’s too late for you and for those you could have helped.

And you know, you may not fully agree with some of the theology of the people behind Make Way Partners or other similar ministries — I don’t, and I tend to be a “truth” guy.  But the 9-year-old orphan that we’ve “adopted” and are supporting monthly isn’t very concerned about our theology.  What’s important to her at this point is that she has food to eat, a bed to sleep in, she’s no longer in danger of being killed by wild dogs while she’s sleeping on the ground or in a tree, and the likelihood of her being captured and forced into the horrors of slavery is almost gone.  Do I care about her spiritual life?  Definitely, and our family prays regularly that she will come to believe the gospel and know Jesus Christ as he is revealed in the truth of Scripture.

Jesus, who refers to himself as “the way, the truth and the life” in John 14:6, said in Matthew 25 that “he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.  For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’. . . ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’

Yeah, time to wake up.
