Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body. Hebrews 13:3 ESV
This morning we go into day two of Jacob Pursley’s appeal for prayers for Armenia in this off and on war with Turkey and Azerbaijan. As I watched and listened, I remembered this verse and how it is so easy for us, here in the Western world, to complain about small things. A leaky toilet, a termite problem or a higher tax bill can prevent us from seeing the suffering of others. The Bible reminds us that we are a part of the world of our brothers and sisters. When we enter into that spiritual connection with them, we will both be enriched: they by our prayers and we by the richness of their faith. I love how Jacob ends his second video by saying that the only true solution to the hatred and spiritual evil behind this war, is the good news of Jesus Christ. So let us pray for not only Armenia, but also for the Christians in Turkey and Azerbaijan, that God will open a door for them to share the gospel, and that hearts may be changed, and nations won for Jesus Christ.
