DEAR ISIS…. (A Heart-Burdened American’s Response)

Growing Up I was taught that Faith is always Stronger than Fear. The Evil You are doing isn’t inspiring Faith, its inflicting Fear. But be aware, that You are messing with a Nation that was Founded not on Fear, but on Faith. This Faith: is A Uniquely Uncommon Faith that was held in the Heart of Pilgrims who journeyed to this land against all odds in pursuit of Religious Freedom. Freedom: An Indivisible Freedom to Worship a God who is still Alive, Vibrant, and Working in our all over our world today. There is a reason we have the Fundamental Motto on our National Currency to say, “In God We Trust.”

This week millions of people across the globe are calling upon you to stop your violence, however, you choose otherwise. Although, many have told me to not post this, I can’t help but boldly share the burden of heart to you. I know you have access to social media, and will more than likely see this post. Today, I’m calling you out not in the name of hate, not in the name of Islam, Allah, or any religion, no, today, I call you out in the name of Love. Not just any love, but the Love of God. Its an extraordinary Love. It’s a Love that you, I, and everyone else in the world needs more of. Its a love that knows no bounds and washes away our hate and fears. Its a Love that looks beyond all of our sins, mistakes, and sees us for what God has called us to be. You see ISIS, you and I have something in common, we both need Jesus in Our Hearts. I’ll never forget when He came into my life and gave me true purpose. My life was changed forever. And if He can change my Heart, He can change anybody.

Despite your horrendous actions, the truth is God didn’t call us to Behead people, but instead He calls us to be His BeLoved People. You may think that your tactics of fear may weaken our armies, starve our hearts, and quench our Faith, however, nothing could be farther from the truth, because we believe in the redemptive Hope of Jesus Christ, and that nothing, no ideology, no videos, no rants, no threats, nothing in this entire World can ever separate us from the Love that We have Through Christ Jesus, not even you. So when you think you have conquered us, be it known, that Fear doesn’t rule us, because Fear was Conquered On the Cross and With that, we know whose on our side, we know who goes before us, and we know that Faith is Greater than Fear. Over 2,000 years ago, The Greatest Love came down to Earth to Free Us from the Fear of Sin and Death, the question for you ISIS and all of us on planet Earth, is will you Accept this Great Love?
