But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. ( Luke 12:7 KJV)
Russians - Your Are Not Forgotten! Actually Nobody is!
Having taking a browse through the statistical report of visitors to my HOPE website today, I had to pause and reflect on a particular trend. What I did notice is that RUSSIANS fall second among the Most Readers of this Hope Devotional as it was readily available in their language and 53 others languages too.
I quickly googled some information on Russia and came to notice that Christianity isn't listed among their religions. The listed religions were: Russian Orthodox, Islam, Judaism, Roman Catholicism, Protestant, Buddhist, other.
This probably meant that many citizens of that country were not being exposed to the Precious News of Christ and it blessed my heart to realize that from the tiny 68 square mile island of St. Kitts, we were reaching so far with our messages of HOPE. That's called using social media and technology to IMPACT the world.
I can only imagine what it must be like living in a country and not constantly hearing the Good News of Hope. The Good News of how Jesus Can Make The Difference.
What I am happy for though, is that no matter where one is on the face of this earth, whether Russia of St. Kitts - Nevis, God hasn't forgotten them. The writer of Luke was very careful to remind readers of how much God cares for EVERYONE.
Honestly. Would you take the time out to count every single strand of hair on your best friend's head? Or even your mother or father or brother or sister? I think I can answer for you - Noooo Waayyy!
That's what Jesus has done. One of the ways we are known in his record books is by the number of hair on our heads. So when one falls out, he knows and revises his record. What care! What care indeed!
This means that WE ARE ALL INDIVIDUALLY KNOWN BY JESUS HIMSELF. Russians are not forgotten and NO ONE is forgotten. I am happy that the Russian State website doesn't list Christianity as a RELIGION, for it certainly is not a RELIGION.
Christianity is a RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST and it's easily accessible through faith and trust in him. Christianity doesn't promise us a life of roses, what it does promise us is a NEW HOPE with which we can live and a special place in heaven at the end of our walk on earth. There is nothing better than that!
Hope is Indeed Ahead - Why Not Trust Jesus Today and Grab Hold of all the the Perks and Blessings that come with this relationship?
