Everywhere you and I look, we are provoked to fear.
Christians around the world are being targeted and persecuted for their faith. The ravages of war and unbridled violence fill our evening news.
Even in the midst of global disasters and personal crises, we can and should live confidently and fearlessly in Christ.
As believers, we have not been given a spirit of fear. Instead, we have received a spirit of power and love (see 2 Timothy 1:7). God has given us a sound mind.
Therefore, even in the midst of global disasters and personal crises, we can and should live confidently and fearlessly in Christ — because we know that our God wins.
He will come again in glory and make all things new.
This is the hope you are sharing each time you give to the work of Leading The Way.
As you pray and give, you are standing against violence and fear by shining the light of the Gospel into the darkness.
And His Truth is changing lives.
Here is the testimony of Azzam* — just one of countless lives God has eternally impacted through our broadcasts:
I am from the Yazidi community. We fled our homes and ISIS took 3,700 of our women and children hostage. After our city was liberated, I went back to my home to find it looted and burned. At that moment, I thanked the Lord that my home is in heaven and that the Bible says, 'All things work together for the good of those who love Him.' I thank the Lord for your channel — it is like my church, comforting and strengthening me daily. I pray every day for the workers and audience of your channel. Blessed be the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. To Him be all the glory.
Even in the midst of such violence, the Lord has opened the door for us to offer hope, healing, and help to those who are broken and hurting.
Will you prayerfully consider giving a gift to help us respond today?
