ISIS continues to infect our world with terror and fear as it brutallyseizesterritory. Beheadings,torture,kidnappings,and humantraffickingspeakitsideology. Frontiers,aworldwide missions organization, is focused exclusively on the Muslim world. Theirmissionstatement: “Withloveandrespect,invitingallMuslim people to follow Jesus.” What is their response to increasing violence in this part of the world? They encourage God’s people to pray for God’s intervention. Remember Saul’s story in the book of Acts. He was a religious zealot and deliberately sought out Christians to both imprison and kill them. Yet, God met him on the Damascus road in all his rage and hatred. Saul asked the pertinen tquestion-“Who are you,Lord?” And God revealed to Saul that he was God’s chosen instrument to carry His name to Israel, to Gentiles, to kings, and he would suffer many things.
