'Praying for Muslims: A guide for effective Intercession 2010'
I will be trying to post from this book every week....
Please join in each FRIDAY in INTERCEDING and FASTING(one meal) for Muslims and those on the FRONT LINES reaching out to Muslims.
One of the major cornerstone of biblical Christianity is the doctrine of the incarnation, that is, God became man. This is the miracle of miracles! This is the most majestic of all events! Yet, Muslims absolutely reject it. They totally oppose the doctrine of the deity of Jesus Christ. In their understanding, when Christians say that Christ is God, it means Christians worship more than one God. To them, Jesus was only human and was a prophet like all other prophets.
Further, when Christians say that Jesus is the Son of God, Muslims understand that to mean that God, like humans, had relations with a woman and that Jesus is their son!
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 1:14; 3:16, NIV).
Amazing love! How can it be, that the majestic God, Maker of the heavens and earth and King of all the universe, should come in the form of a man, a slave, to be "Immanuel - God with us" to redeem us!
Father in heaven, grant Muslims a special measure of Your grace to accept this wonderful truth that Jesus Christ is God become man. Help them realize that this does not degrade or humiliate You; rather this is the pinnacle of majesty. It is ultimate love and compassion. It is utmost sacrifice.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God and Lord of all, You are rich but You became poor for our sake. May this truth shine forth in the souls of many Muslims this week. May they embrace You in their hearts with joy and gladness. May the child who was born in a manger, the Lion of Judah, be crowned King and Master over the House of Islam! In His precious name I pray. Amen.
