Whether you see it or not, you are giving your life for something. You are living your life for something everyday!
The question is, “What are you living your life for?” If money is not an option, what would you want to do with your life?
Your answer to these questions will reveal your heart’s deepest longing and desire. Your life is meant to do something greater than yourself. Living for others will give new meaning and purpose to your life.
“North Korea has the greatest cry of injustice on earth. Its people cry a silent cry – no one but God could hear.”
When I wake up each day, I realize that I am a Christian and that means I am someone who cares. I care for the Name of the one person in my life who loved me and gave Himself for me.
I care for the honour of Jesus Christ. Because of that, I care for the things that He cared about. I let my heart be broken by the things that break His heart.
I look around and find injustice around me. I hear the cries of people everyday asking for hope and healing and restoration. I realize that I have the answer to what they are looking for. I have the hope that they need. I could not turn a deaf ear on them for I am a Christian. Christ lives in me and He could not turn a deaf ear on the cries of people begging and shouting for help. I am someone who cares about others and the honour and glory of my God.
When Jesus was still on the earth, He emphasized three things that spell real Christianity and worship. He said He desired mercy (readiness to help those in trouble) than sacrifice, for justice and righteousness to rule on the earth.
Why do we focus on North Korea? This country has the greatest cry of injustice on earth. Its people cry a silent cry… no one but God could hear.
God makes us hear the cries of these people. When He called me into this nation, I had no idea that North Korea even exists! Only God could make me hear their cries… inside my heart, I felt their pain.
When I finally went and saw these people with my own eyes, nothing could have prepared me in seeing the horrors of the reality of the injustice they endure. I wanted to shout then at the top of my voice, I could not even eat… I was so moved by the plight of these forgotten people. I still hear them… their cries, their silent pleas for help echo in my heart rendering it broken many times.
The question I asked myself is this: Will I just stand here and do nothing? If I have compassion it will move me to do something. I want to ask you the same question. I wish that you will also find the same answer…
Be counted! Be one of Jesus Army of radical and fearless disciples willing and able to do whatever it takes to get the Gospel to the ends of the earth!
Join us and together we will see the Light of the Gospel shining in North Korea and beyond!
