CONNECTIONS!?... How are they working out?

Many of you have emailed me about your willingness to try out the list of ten (10) ideas for being a light to our darkened world.  The results have been both amazing and sometimes predictable. Most of you have found that people are not changing fast enough for your expectations while others are shocked that people don’t notice or don’t care.  Just think about how God feels when you think about how long people have ignored his signs and wonders, let alone His plan for their life.  Keep the faith!!

This week is an important time to start a prayer chain for a brother in the Lord.  Many of you sent me notes about how you were inspired by the book that chronicles the “Son of Hamas”, Mosab Hassan Yousef as he shares his conversion experience.  The book also recounts incredible events of violence and double agent intrigue as Mosab walked a fine line of being a Palestinian and also a double agent for Israel.  Because of his admitted time as a Hamas member, US authorities in Homeland Security are ignoring his Christian conversion and witness and have started deportation proceedings.  Those trials and hearings will begin this month on June 30th, and if he is returned to the West Bank it is almost a certain death sentence as his family has disowned him since Mosab became a Christian. 

There is a lot of press coverage about how some of our Christian leaders have made claims about the Islamic faith.  It surprises me that we have seen little or no coverage of Mosab’s conversion to Christianity and even less coverage is given to the fate of Muslims who convert to Christianity worldwide.  For many Americans, we don’t come close to understanding how world changing it is for a Muslim to stop being a Muslim within their family and their culture.  That is why it is important to start making “connections” to our neighbors, family, and co-workers.  We may be their “family” that transcends bloodlines and could make an eternal difference in their future.  Who is God calling you to befriend?

Luke 9:47-48 (RSV) “But when Jesus perceived the thought of their hearts, he took a child and put him by his side, and said to them, ‘Whoever receives this child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me; for he who is least among you all is the one who is great."
