I never thought I’d be led to Ukraine.
However, after months of helping in Eastern Europe with the crisis, I have a lot of thoughts.
Dozens of people were just killed in the region our team is providing critical aid to in Ukraine. And just yesterday, 10 missiles were launched on Mykolaiv, the exact city we serve.
Our teams risk their lives to serve the people of not just Ukraine, but around the world because as Paul said, “the love of Christ compels us”. The Gospel births compassion in us that leads to sacrifice.
And while we can’t all bring food into Ukraine, we can all have a compassionate response to what’s happening. As the war leaves the news in America, the need is actually greater than ever.
But the need isn’t just in Ukraine… it may be a crisis 5 minutes from your home.
My question is this. Do you care and are you willing to do something about it?
“Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.” Corinthians 5:14-15 NLT
