We all know that sin and pride results in a world marked by division and “isms”; racism, consumerism, ethnocentrism, elitism, agnosticism, atheism, and many other “isms” that separate—and finally end in conflict.
The Bible is quite clear about the root cause of conflict; “What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel”. James 4:1-3
However, in the midst of this darkness, there is hope.
The Bible also says, For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:19
So God first provided the way out from conflict (by reconciling the world to Himself) and then passed on this message of reconciliation…to us!
From its earliest days MAF has been involved in bringing hope and healing to parts of the world in greatest need. And today we continue to fly in support of efforts to bring reconciliation. It will never be easy, but together we can play our part in being peacemakers in places like South Sudan! Will you join with us?
