All night long

“We repeated it all night long!” These two Muslim girls were so proud of knowing Joshua 1:9 by heart “Do not fear, do not be afraid, for I, the Lord your God will be with you.” Later we talked in small groups about why we obey God. No, it’s not to win His favour, like one girl thought, who was fasting, hoping that God would give her good grades. Rather, it’s because we’ve experienced God’s fatherly love and forgiveness, and we simply want to thank Him and please Him in return. These girls left with booklets explaining who Jesus is, and we pray that, in future encounters, they might understand this grace and keep God’s word hidden in their hearts.
