In a previous “Christians… Insomniacs?” post (CLICK HERE), I mentioned how we comfortably slipped into a complacent Christian mode where we tend to go through the motions which may be attending church… perhaps leading worship…etc but we feel an empty void. We feel that we need to do more for the Kingdom of God. Well, I’m here to introduce one way that I get my religion on. Wink wink.
Now as you read the verse below, focus on the bold part…
James 1:27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
Some people don’t know where to start with that. It’s difficult for most Americans to get out of their comfort zones to tend to the poor and needy so there are some simple baby steps to take. All it takes is a little financial dedication and internet access. One of the organizations I will introduce is an organization that was introduced to me by a close buddy. Gospel For Asia.
Here is how the president of the organization puts it:
A message from President and Founder K.P. Yohannan
In our busy lives, it is easy to be so preoccupied with our own dreams and pursuits that we lose our eternal perspective. Both the joys of heaven and the crying needs of a lost world can seem unreal and far away.
But the harsh reality is that 2.7 billion people of our generation are still unreached with the Gospel. What answers are we prepared to give to the living God when He asks about the blood of these multitudes on our hands?
A Great Privilege
Today, we have the great privilege of helping them come to know Jesus. If we will commit to live for what is eternal, this generation can be reached with the Gospel.
Through the Eyes of Jesus
I pray that Gospel for Asia will become like a bridge, giving you the opportunity to walk away from your own preoccupations to the harvest fields of Asia—and see the perishing multitudes through the eyes of Jesus.
May you allow God to use your life to change the destiny of millions through your prayers and partnership with our national brothers and sisters. A hundred years from now, you will be glad you did!
I know that when I come to you, I will come in the full measure of the blessing of Christ.
