Recently, Emily and Grace were shopping at a market where they met a Muslim lady from Tajikistan. As they shared the story of Jesus’ sacrifice with her, she told them it was the first time she had heard this. With sadness in her eyes, she said that Islam was so different. She was very intrigued by what Emily and Grace told her, and she seemed to envy their assurance of heaven and relationship with God. When they asked her if she would like to make the decision to follow Jesus, she thought about it for a minute and quietly said no.
The fear of consequences, which are undoubtedly great, holds many people back from accepting the truth of God. Today let’s pray against the fear and chains of Islam that keep these precious people from knowing the love of their Heavenly Father.
