But What Can I Do?
"The goal of God in history is to uphold and display his glory for the enjoyment of the reedmed from every tribe and tongue and people and nation."
"The goal of missions therefore is the gladness of the peoples in the greatness of God."
I just arrived home from Cambodia. The question could be, "Was it worth it? It's not like you can change things in 10 days." As we were debriefing about the trip we were reflecting on this and the ways God revealed Himself through us, the most important thing, since God's goal is for people to see His greatness. We saw Him reveal Himself as Patient, Long-suffering, Faithful, the Sufficient Provider, Freedom Giver, Joy, Light, Restorer and love. Cambodian parents do not express love in anyway to their children. So when we affirm and hug and play with the kids. It is love they have never experienced. They are getting to experience love. Love that comes from God through us. Yes! God revealed His character, His heart to the people of Cambodia through our willingness and sacrifice to go. Yes, it was worth it! God was glorified, there is nothing greater than that.
Over the past couple weeks have been sharing what the enemy is up to in this forgotten country, but also trying to show how God is powerfully displaying Himself in the midst of the darkness. In my last post, sweet Charlotte asked "What can I do to help?" Thank you Charlotte for having a tender, willing heart. That tenderness and willingness give us a glimpse of God's heart for these little ones.
Here are some options of how you can take action in the face of injustice. And not for you only, with descretion, you can do these things with your kids. If they see you praying and giving and going to the world, they will see it as important. Let God use you to give a heart for the world to your kids. How beautiful would it be to raise Radical kids, who wont be trained to live the American Dream.
