Ministry is messy
I was reminded of that this morning reading a post from Keith Giles, Baby Mikala. When we get away from the sanitized church culture as most of us understand it, whether meeting in a "church" or in a house or a rented space, and start getting involved in ministering to those who really are hurting and in desperate need, we find ourselves embroiled in pain, hurt, suffering and outright spiritual warfare. Spiritual warfare isn't happening amidst our religion. The enemy is quite content when we are going through our religious motions. Spiritual warfare happens when we follow the footsteps of Jesus and seek out those who need Him. Read Keith's post and please pray as I will for this precious child, for Keith and his wife and for this child's parents who are struggling with something that most of us cannot imagine.
