how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
Muslims are broken people—lost in shame, darkness, pain, heartbreak, rejection, striving, hopelessness, abuse, and emptiness, just to name a few. We remember that without Christ we are the same—lost and broken sinners. Without the atonement of Jesus, there is no hope. The power of Christ’s blood brings salvation, but also more than salvation.
Muslims believe they have salvation yet they are still empty inside. There is still something missing. So, the issue of believing you are “saved” is not enough. There is something more that Christ brings that no other religion can.
It is the abundant life. The abundance of knowing Christ takes us beyond the door of salvation and into an endless ocean of hope, purpose, power, love and joy. Until Jesus encounters us, we continue to strive for these things that only the true God can give. Until Jesus shines the light of His truth on our dark minds we remain bound and in darkness.
This passage in Ephesians is a great way to pray, line by line, for Muslims. Ask the Lord to shine His light over their dark thinking—like the stories we share on our Stories page where many report that they knew there must be something more and they desired the truth. We pray for this. We pray that God would enlighten their hearts and minds to the truth (Ephesians 1:17-19).
Join the story by praying for us that we would reach many more Muslims for Christ in the difficult access regions of the Middle East. You can get involved by becoming a partner today, sowing into these regions of the earth with us ‘Until Jesus.’ We are thankful for your partnership.
