Marc Aurel K.
Review for OPEN DOORS WITH BROTHER ANDREW INC, Santa Ana, CA, USA
Now someone might ask me “Marc, why are you supporting the Open Doors ministry?” Here is why: firstly, this ministry has a long history (more than 6 decades!) of faithfully and sacrificially serving and being committed to the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church by offering practical and on-the-ground assistance and aid to persecuted Christians, at great risks. Typically, persecuted Christians are considerably made up of orphans and widows, as husbands and fathers get killed by radical groups such as Boko Haram, Muslim Fulani Herdsmen, ISIS, and so on. Therefore, by prayerfully and financially partnering with this ministry, I get to practice “pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father” which is “to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world” – James 1:27.
Secondly, the Lord Jesus Christ offers many promises with eternal rewards related to caring for His children, especially the least of them and the most vulnerable, as recorded in the following Bible passages: Matthew 10:42, Proverbs 19:17, Ecclesiastes 11:1, Matthew 25:40, Mark 9:41, and Hebrews 6:10.
Thirdly, members of the Body of Christ must love each other, care for one another, and serve one another just as Christ, the Head of this Body, exemplified. “This makes for harmony among the members, so that all the members care for each other. If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, all the parts are glad” – 1 Corinthians 12:25-26.
Fourthly and lastly, it is good investing in Open Doors because this organization gets the job done! What I mean by that is it takes the words of the Lord Jesus Christ seriously, and, therefore, it is bearing eternally good fruit by the grace and mercy of and for the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ!
