[Jesus said] "I will be with you always, even until the end of the world." – Matthew 28:20b
Alleluia! Jesus accompanies us every step of our lives. He has walked beside our brothers and sisters refugees/migrants through all of the pain and suffering and continues to do so. He understands as no one else can because He has also experienced every human emotion and every human event (persecution, torture, insult, and, even death). He gets it. “Be not afraid” are His words in Matt.17:7 “for I am with you.” As civil war raged in the country of my brother, He was there. When the children
of my brother were murdered He was there weeping and suffering with him. When many died in the desert because of lack of food and water, the Lord was there to accompany them into heaven where there is no more hunger or thirst. When my sister was beaten and raped, Jesus was there hurting
with her and giving her hope.
Much of our ministry is accompaniment – accompanying physically and spiritually our refugee/migrant family – through the good and the bad – being there. It is a great privilege and responsibility that we bear. May the Lord supernaturally continue to walk with us and with our brothers and sisters in the days ahead. Of one thing we are sure - He is faithful and keeps His promises.
