As preppers, the very reason we prep is to minimize the suffering that our family would go through during an emergency or poop hit the fan scenario. We stock up! We plan! We keep watch! Some call us weird because of it all.
We know that “when” it happens, there will be pain and suffering. But how should we see the suffering? Should we welcome it? I’m talking specifically to Christian Preppers!
Now, I’m not saying that we go looking for it! I’m not saying we should not prep! What I’m saying, is when the pain and suffering comes, how should we respond? How should we respond because we are first Christians, then Preppers!
I’m putting this out there because I recently listened to a message by Francis Chan. He is at a conference and discussing Ministering to Unreached People Groups (2015). He really gets to his message about halfway into the video. There he shares the story of a leader in China and how they view suffering. It is powerful! This view is so far outside of the view of American Christianity. I challenge you to watch it.
I’m also including the video of the same conference from a year later (2016). It is just as powerful! And he discussed his previous year.
Don’t give up! Have faith in God! Press in to Him! He will never fail you!
