I urge you to pray for believers in Iraq.
At times with these posts, I have been encouraging you to read blog posts written by someone outside of AiG because I consider the content important.
Today, I would like to bring your attention to a blog post written by Russell D. Moore—he is the president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, described as the “the moral and public policy agency of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination.”
Christians around the world are changing their social media avatars to the arabic letter “n.” In so doing, these Christians are reminding others around them to pray, and to stand in solidarity with believers in Iraq who are being driven from their homes, and from their country, by Islamic militants. The Arabic letter comes from the mark the ISIS militants are placing on the homes of known Christians. “N” is for “Nazarene,” those who follow Jesus of Nazareth. Perhaps it’s a good time to reflect on why Nazareth matters, to all of us. The truth that our Lord is a Nazarene is a sign to us of both the rooted locality and the global solidarity of the church.I encourage you to read the entire blog post.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
