The Power to be Authentic
It’s a “one foot in front of the other” journey to serve the people of Israel, filled with treacherous terrain, problematic potholes, massive downed trees, flash flooding, and constant detours unforeseen by GPS, metaphorically speaking. Were it not for the mandate to bless Israel, many would consider the governmental hoop-jumping, looming threats of deportation, miles of red tape and various other forms of adversity to be insurmountable and maybe not even worth the trouble of serving such a nation. Why do so many Christian and Messianic groups serve then? Why do they sacrifice so much to bring assistance to its citizens without a promise of any kind of return? Is it just about that Biblical admonition to go? Or is there something more?
