Goings On

By John Moore

Scores of Egyptian Christians are fleeing from the Northern African nation of Libya, following the beheadings of their countrymen by Isis terrorists. Other than praying for the region, there is little that we can do to change what is happening. We
can say that it’s because we are drawing into an apocalyptic era, but we wouldn’t really know. It’s reported that the Roman Emperor Nero burned Christians on stakes two thousand years ago. History repeats its persecution of Christianity. We live with much that we can’t explain, but we know that our focus on Christ’s reality extends far beyond our church group.

Right across the world we share a responsibility to represent Christ no matter what. The people of Malawi in Africa have been ravaged by floods and it will be good to get an update on mission activity in that region this morning. We also need to remember Adi in Uganda, Africa. Uganda is referred to as the pearl of Africa because it is a magnificent country. However, it is marked with corruption, poverty, and millions of orphaned children. Pray for Adi’s ministry and his wellbeing.

What about on the home front? Well, Joshua is an innovative and enterprising student, who has taken the great commission burden into the local shopping centers and is striking up conversations with locals. Joshua and his Moore Park friends are fully engaged in a mission that is finding good form. Quite a few Moore Parkians are headed for a Gideon Bible blitz in Melbourne. Other families are engaged in a mission to students. Pray for safe travels as they work out their faith. Mission is what God calls each of us to love and be part of. There are many other groups fully engaged in being Christ to the world.

I can’t help but think of the Israelites who experienced the horrors of Egyptian brutality and the guiding exodus under Moses. God fully took them to where they needed to go, but the people struggled to see the future with a positive outlook. In fact they grumbled about much of what took place. Thank goodness we wouldn’t be like that. Our church is being led into a new era of mission. What we can’t do is look back, or find ourselves going around in circles. God is going to take us into physical developments that will require trust and sacrifice. This includes meetings and organizational developments. He is at work! We are being more engaged. The church that settles or circles around their agenda is the church that dies a death that it should never die. He will take each of us, together, into spiritual developments that are good. Knowing our Savior and declaring his goodness are worth our lives.
