While we watch the Olympics, ignore the news about Hillary and Trump, and get ready for the inevitable start of a new school year, there are still wars going on and millions of refugees stuck in camps, crammed into tiny apartments with multiple families, starving, and barely getting by. Today’s image of Omran Daqneesh, the young Syrian boy in the ambulance, is a reminder of why there are refugees and why he and others leave their homeland for a better life.
Luke writes in Acts 17, that God made all the nations and throughout history He is the one who determines where they live for the single purpose that they might seek their Creator. Verse 27 says, “that they might feel their way toward Him and find Him.”
The refugees coming to Western Europe and America are not coming here by accident. What they don’t know is that they are seeking Him. God is bringing the nations to us because we haven’t been very good about going to them. The church today has an opportunity like none other to expand the Kingdom of God and to reach millions and millions of people who have never once heard the Gospel. They are seeking, we have the answer to what they are looking for, and we must be obedient to the One who has saved us.
Canyon Hills Community Church is for the first time, working in partnership with World Relief-Seattle to begin resettling refugees within our own local area. As a church, we will walk along with a family as soon as they get off the airplane in Sea-Tac--helping them to find work and to become self-sufficient. We are doing this for the cause of Christ, for the reason why God is bringing them here. We want to create long-lasting relationships with them, so that we can share the Gospel in order that they will become new brothers and sisters in Christ.
On Thursday September 15, 2016, from 6:00pm-7:30pm we will be holding an information meeting with World Relief in the Upstairs Chapel. I want to encourage you to come and hear how you can be a part of reaching the nations right here in our area.
God is moving all over the world; He is fulfilling His plan that all nations will worship Jesus. We can either be a part of His plan, or we can sit by and watch it be fulfilled before our eyes.Commenting is not available in this channel entry.
