Meditations on Love, Part 10: From Jihad to Jesus

In the final segment of this ten-part series, our brother Joel Rosenberg related an experience meeting a former terrorist leader who in the past would have murdered Joel in cold blood.

Instead of doing that during this particular encounter, the former terrorist embraced Joel as a brother.


Because of an act of love.

Someone sowed seeds.  The seeds were Bibles.  The harvest of just one of those seeds was a life changed from murder and terror to compassion and love:

Jesus explains it this way:

3Give attention to this! Behold, a sower went out to sow.

4And as he was sowing, some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up.

5Other seed [of the same kind] fell on ground full of rocks, where it had not much soil; and at once it sprang up, because it had no depth of soil;

6And when the sun came up, it was scorched, and because it had not taken root, it withered away.

7Other seed [of the same kind] fell among thorn plants, and the thistles grew and pressed together and utterly choked and suffocated it, and it yielded no grain.

8And other seed [of the same kind] fell into good (well-adapted) soil and brought forth grain, growing up and increasing, and yielded up to thirty times as much, and sixty times as much, and even a hundred times as much as had been sown.

9And He said, He who has ears to hear, let him be hearing [and let him consider, and comprehend].
Mark 4:3-9 [AMP]

Somebody sowed the word (we explain in this podcast). And while most of the seeds sown were destroyed by the Islamic men who had intercepted them, one seed got through and changed a life for eternity... impacting who knows how many lives?

Food for Thought

  1. Exposure to the Son may prevent burning...

  2. The King of Pop is gone, the King of Comedy is gone, the King of Soul is gone, the King of Rock is gone, but the King of Kings lives on!

  3. When Jesus said “Fret Not,” He wasn’t saying that you shouldn’t play the guitar...
