In view of the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami that have occurred in Japan, we need to be much in prayer for the Japanese people, and for God’s sovereign purposes in these events. RCG has connections with people in Japan, primarily through the ministries of the Kinjos and the O’Dells. Great needs abound both spiritually and physically, and these will abound for a long time to come.
Dr. Albert Mohler’s perspectives in his recent blog is When the Earth Moves: Pray for the People of Japan are very helpful. I encourage you to read his short reflections.
Even as we pray for the people of Japan, may we likewise heed the Lord’s exhortation to “…be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you…” (2 Peter 1:10) We are accountable to the One who shakes the earth and rolls the waves, and who will eternally judge all who rebel against Him. What hope, joy, peace, and security for those who are trusting Jesus Christ – He alone is the Rock of our salvation!
