Passing on Jesus

For years, my daughter heard me answer people who asked, “Are you afraid of going to Israel? Isn’t it dangerous?” My answer was and still is, “No, I’m not afraid as the safest place to be is where God wants me to be.” This doesn’t mean physical harm won’t come. Many in Scripture were physically harmed for following what God told them to do. Yet, I love Jesus and want to walk where He walks. And, if that’s in Israel, then there’s no other place I’d rather be.
My daughter is now faced with the same question. “Are you afraid of being in….” Suffice it to say, it’s a current world hot spot. And her answer, “I know I’m where God wants me to be. I’ve prayed about coming here for years, have tried to get here many times; and finally, I am.” She’s had countless opportunities to share about her love for Jesus.
Yes, as a dad, I want to protect her. But, as I’ve always told my kids, “You have two dads. One, who will fail you and One who will not.” This dad, couldn’t be prouder of my daughter and of the Dad that my daughter is trusting. In these uncertain times, are you?
