The story of the Refugee Crisis isn’t the story of the refugees themselves, the volunteers, or the countries involved. It’s the story of humanity, of the basic needs of food, water, shelter, and relationships that we all have, and how we have more in common with each other than we have differences.
While in Greece, I saw walls of division come down between refugees and Westerners. And I saw this through Christians walking out their own brokenness.
It’s a huge, eternal, proven fact that God uses disaster to bring people to Him.
There are more stories in the Bible of people coming to the Lord through the disaster than through success. In the Old Testament, we see this in the Israelites. In Acts, it’s especially evident in our model for how we are to live today: the Early Church.
