Christians are making significant inroads in reaching out to Israel’s Arab allies. Praise God for Christian leaders willing to mobilize others in reaching out to Arab nations with respect to persecution of Christians, humanitarian efforts and joint efforts in neutralizing the threat of radical Islam.
A few days ago, a group of Christian leaders, led by Joel Rosenberg, visited Egypt’s President el-Sisi, his cabinet and religious leaders. That was followed by a trip to Jordan, to meet with His Majesty King Abdullah II last Tuesday. That capped three days of meetings with senior officials and Jordanian religious leaders.
The report out of Jordan is every bit as encouraging as the one out of Egypt last week. Joel Rosenberg has posted this report of those meetings on his blog, and I encourage you to check it out!
As Christians, we are to be found faithful when our Lord returns. Praise God for these men and women who are faithfully carrying forth efforts of reconciliation and peace toward Israel and her neighbors in the name of Jesus Christ. Will you take a few minutes right now to thank the Lord for His guidance and goodness, and to ask favor upon the nations of Egypt and Jordan? Also, pray for great boldness for Middle East Christians. They obviously live in a very difficult neighborhood and many are persecuted. Let’s be faithful to pray for them, and that the Gospel of Jesus Christ will go forth in the Middle East.
