THE SCOPE
God is our Refuge! These words ring ever so true in light of the travails currently facing the world. If it is not an Ebola viral epidemic or doom of a self-proclaimed caliphate of Boko Haram in West Africa, it would be the Islamic State or ISIS movement in Iraq – parading their depravity in front of the global audience with the beheading of Journalist James Foley.
The age-old Israel-Palestine power and identity conflict continue to loom in the horizon. The world is crying out for answers. This is our cue as the Church to stand up and provide an answer.

But in all these, God is indeed our refuge. Reminded of the lyrics by Michael Smith:
Jesus is the answer for the world today
Above Him there's no other, Jesus is the way
Jesus is the answer for the world today

The solution to the world’s challenges is our rootedness in Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing (Eph.1:3). We continue to look up to heaven as we reach out with our feet and hands with the compassion of Jesus and as we proclaim him Lord of all. There is no other way!

When we are facing situations such as the Ebola pandemic in West Africa, we must fight the enemy called fear. Ebola has spread fear in all in Africa and the rest of the world. Because of fear, we forget the important Christian values that should be revealed in our lives Read more...
