No matter who you are or where you’re reading this today, if you follow Christ you have an important task ahead of you.
“We, as believers in Jesus Christ, have a duty, a responsibility, to seek out others,” Samuel* of Redemptive Stories says.
“We need to love our neighbor as ourselves. I have a responsibility to seek out a relationship and communicate the truth of Jesus Christ, to care for them and love them, even though they might not be someone I like or enjoy.”
Samuel and other believers at Redemptive Stories work with Syrian refugees in the Middle East. Two refugee families recently came to Christ, but they didn’t leave their conflict at the cross.
“There were new believing families that were interacting detrimentally towards one another [in] one of the programs that we run,” Samuel says.
“The youths were carrying out some of the fighting and interpersonal dynamics caused by the parents’ issues [at] the school, and causing issues among the other students.”
