Today I have been contemplating how God has drawn near to his creation by the method in which He sent His only Son to earth. How incredible that God would openly find a way to bring about our rescue and reconciliation, not by requiring that we come to Him, but by His coming into our midst! No person has ever been rescued from a harmful situation as a result of another person's passiveness. Some one has to throw the lifeline, someone has to administer CPR, someone has to reach out and rescue the one who is in danger. Today, I am especially glad that God has reached out to us. And if he has used this model of drawing near to be the method that has rescued our souls, I am uniquely inspired to apply the same approach to those in this world who desperately need my help.
Rather than spend time reading this blog today, I ask - plead even - that you would consider reaching out to save the life of vulnerable child in southern Africa. There is a time for passiveness and a time for action. There are so many children in Zambia and Zimbabwe who literally cannot wait any longer. They need action. They need their brothers and sisters in the West to affirm that they are not forgotten.
Many in southern Africa will die today without a the knowledge of the wonderful rescue that took place at that first Christmas over 2,000 years ago. Please help us to ensure that tomorrow is different. Click here to make your voice heard. Draw near to a child that needs a miraculous rescue which you are uniquely able to supply.
With kind appreciation and blessings,
