WILLS POINT, TX — Jesus said, “I stand at the door and knock” (Revelation 3:20, NKJV). Now—in the midst of Afghanistan’s theater of fear—it’s the brutally abused, tortured, hungry, broken and bleeding who are literally standing at the door of our hearts and knocking. They are Jesus, asking for us to open our hearts to feel their pain and become the answer to their chaos, grief and pain (St. Matthew 25:35-40).
Today in Afghanistan, males will be executed on the spot, women will be raped, and adolescent girls will be taken as sex slaves for Taliban fighters.
What’s happening right now in Afghanistan sends shivers down my spine and—I’m sure—yours, too. This could be my family, or yours.
But I want to ask you: is the horrific suffering in Afghanistan affecting the way you live your life? Or is your life just carrying on as normal? Because none of us should be acting “normal” while our brothers and sisters in Afghanistan wait in dread for the Taliban to appear at our doorstep.
You and I have a crucial role, one that should disrupt our “normal” lives: we need to be on our knees in prayer.
