Militant groups trying to impose Islamic law on a country…insurgent-like attacks, thousands have fled their homes…
Some might try to tell me that the events in Nigeria and Iraq are unrelated. I beg to differ, wholeheartedly. Perhaps they’re not generated by the same source or carried out in the same fashion, but there’s a similarity in that a non-Christian group has become a threat to Christians.
As Christians, we need to think carefully about this. We need to ask ourselves what our heavenly Father is saying to us through all of this. World events do indeed affect us, many times in ways we could never imagine.
What IS our Father saying to us?
