As we learn more about this thing called faith, as we grow in our understanding of Christ’s love for us and as we try to apply this new knowledge to our lives, one thing becomes increasingly clear. We cannot love from afar. We need to be in the world but not of the world. The world is a dirty and messy place that needs the love of Christ and the nastier the situation the greater the need.

Go where God wants you to be. Jesus will meet you there and strengthen you no matter how uncertain and fearful you are, go. He will give you the wisdom to do what is needed (if you ask), He will provide the means to do His will (maybe not in the way you foresee), and He will be with you every step of the way.
