The Message of Haiyan is not for the unbelievers, but for those who believe they do, to those who claim they love God, that they know God and God knows them. Those who say “we are Christians and we believe in the Bible”. The aftermath situation is always a harvest field – we are called not to condemn but to show kindness – kindness that resonates the love of God that’s why Jesus came. Let’s continue to pray, volunteer and give – and they will know that yes, there is Christmas!
“If my people, who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray
and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin, and I will heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:13-15
