My pioneer heart is jealous for this village that pledged their lives to Islam
Human language cannot articulate or express the way I feel when I watch this video. The fire that burns deep within me wants to channel my inner James and John and ask Jesus to literally reign down fire… and consume… but the Spirit of God gently reminds me that He died for the men that are passionately preaching their set of beliefs to this rural village in Malawi. However, the depths of my heart cry out with the Spirit of God in protest to the Thief that comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy through this belief system we label Islam, but that’s why we have the pioneers…
The very core of my being is jealous for the faces we see in this video. Jealous that I didn’t reach them first. Jealous that my team didn’t reach them first. Jealous that they do NOT know the Father’s love that longs to perfect them and cast out the fear that wages war inside their hearts. The Love that will give them the very ability of God as a new creation in Christ Jesus.
Am I angry? Yes! Am I thankful? Yes! I am thankful that the Lord is raising up people within our team to pioneer places in Africa and in our world that are dominated by religion, whether it be Islam or African traditional religion. I am thankful that the Lord has called my family and I to that very same mission. To pioneer places that are susceptible to religious influences that bring people into bondage… we can effectively minister and disciple people and co-labour with Jesus Christ to transfer them out of the kingdom of darkness and into the kingdom of LOVE. What a privilege. What a blessing.
I’m grateful for the modern day pioneers. I’m thankful to be a part of a team that is running full steam ahead to reach the unreached with the Gospel. To reach the unreached with the truth that will save them rather than enslave them… thank you to my wonderful team that I love and adore and am so grateful for.
Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Song of Solomon 8:6
