Suddenly I was sitting straight up wide awake… That is how I came to realize, this past Friday that there was a coup happening in my back yard in Istanbul.
All around the world there are millions of people who for thousands of reasons of poverty, oppression and injustice are crying out for a Savior to come. Two thousand years ago He came incarnated in a little baby. This year He still comes, incarnated in you.
They had faith and he was healed… He had the faith, and they were healed… Do I have faith?
It is much easier to speak out against the violence of our leaders than it is to curb the violence and abuse of authority in my own heart.
