What did Moses mean when he wrote, “You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself…”? (Lev 19:34 ESV). Perhaps a better question is, how shall we do this? This week in Clarkston, this love, born out of the Person and work of Christ, looked like taking a Congolese mother of three, before sunrise, to an appointment with a potential employer. It looked like helping a Syrian couple navigate the terms of their lease so they could move their family. It looked like giving children from the Middle East and Africa homework help. It looked like helping asylum seeking neighbors from Kinshasa, Congo with their feverish one year old daughter. It looked like delivering a washing machine to an Afghan family of seven. And it looked like teaching English to people from all nations. Chris shares that they continue to be reminded how God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son. Yes, the fields, even here in the US, are white for harvest. Please pray for patience and perseverance through the power of the Spirit, and the ability to reflect God’s love by deeds of mercy and the very words of Jesus.
