After the 8.9 magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunamis, the devastation in Japan is overwhelming. 11,000+ people are either dead or missing. Thousands and thousands have lost everything and are cold, homeless and hungry. And there are possible threats of nuclear explosions and aftershocks that could lead to more chaos and destruction. What does God want me to do? What does God want Graystone to do?
The people of Japan are heavy on my heart, and I have been praying constantly for them. Japan is not a “Christian nation” and I’m praying that God will use this disaster to lead thousands of Japanese to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. I am also praying that Jesus’ church worldwide will respond, work together and demonstrate God’s amazing love, grace, and compassion.
Let’s pray. Let’s trust God’s spirit to lead us to the appropriate response. Then, let’s be faithful to do what God has called us to do.
Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. 9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.” 1 Peter 3:8-9
