All of the death and destruction in Haiti really breaks your heart. It’s difficult to watch it all. Devastating and very sad.
It’s a reminder of how fragile life is and how close we ALL are to death. Death is a reality due to Adam’s sin and our sin. The wages of sin is death (Rom. 6:23) and we are all simply one diagnosis away from the reality that we all face.
But the real tragedy is not simply the physical death in Haiti but the eternal deaths meaning that all of the lost souls who did not know the Lord Jesus Christ died and went to hell.
The reality of hell as a real place is daunting to us. As believers, we must be more urgent in how we spread the Gospel to all nations. If we believe what we say we believe, then we have no excuse for not reaching out to lost souls and to places where the Gospel is not easily accessible.
I urge you to prayerfully support missionaries all over the world. In fact, you can support TIL as we are planning to plant churches with biblical soul care ministries in Kenya for it, Uganda, and Tanzania and in Japan!
We’ve got to get the message out that Jesus is Lord and heals the brokenhearted souls of all people groups.
-Mark (it’s urgent; the end is near)
