Who Will Rebuild America's Foundation?

From the desk of Dr. Michael Youssef

I'm honored to call America my adopted homeland -- yet I'm grieved to see this nation crumbling from within. No attack by a foreign power could achieve the devastation America is inflicting on herself. From the marble halls of government to the broadcast towers of the media to the ivory towers of our universities, we are seeing a relentless attack on Christian faith and morality.

Within the church we see professing Christians denying the Truth of the Gospel, trivializing sin, and rejecting the authority of God's Word. The strong, protective walls of God's Truth are being dismantled brick by brick, leaving the next generation defenseless.

The solution to our crisis is in the Word of God. There we read that when Nehemiah heard that the walls of Jerusalem were destroyed, he was devastated. "I sat down and wept," he said. "For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven." The waywardness of God's people broke Nehemiah's heart and drove him to his knees in prayer.

Are our hearts broken over the collapsed walls of the church? God honors obedience and answers prayer. Will we report for duty?

Let's say, "Here I am, Lord. Use me to help rebuild the walls of Your church." Then let's rise up and proclaim our faith in Christ. Let's be vibrant witnesses in our communities. And let's encourage each other to stand firm through opposition.

Here at home, Leading The Way continues to proclaim the undiluted Gospel of Jesus Christ more than 4,300 times every week over the airwaves, reaching the lost and calling believers to stand for Biblical Truth.

In addition to airing the Gospel message via television and radio, we are reaching the digital mission field. In a culture where the average American spends more than seven hours a day on the Internet and mobile devices, God has established Leading The Way as a voice of Truth on strategic digital media platforms.

But this vital evangelistic work is only possible through your partnership. Would you prayerfully consider giving a gift this month to help us proclaim Biblical Truth not just globally, but here at home?

Although our walls are crumbling, together we can fill the cracks with faith, set new bricks in the Gospel, and secure a solid foundation in His Truth.

In Christ,

July Notes from Our Inbox

Each month Leading The Way receives correspondence from all over the world. Through emails, letters, SMS, and phone calls, viewers and listeners express share how God has touched them through our programming. We hope that this month’s notes from our inbox will be an encouragement to you and an answer to your prayers for Leading The Way.

USA:

“I very much like to read and listen to all that you offer. I have witnessed more and more of God working in my life and I am grateful for having the opportunity to be able to learn from the way Michael presents his messages. God does have a plan for me and Michael has really opened my eyes to the most important message of all.”

Australia:

“I was greatly encouraged in the Lord when an occasion arose where I was resting on a seat outside a supermarket waiting for my daughter. I thought, ‘What a good opportunity to listen to Leading The Way.’ There was a young, unkempt aboriginal lad sitting nearby and as I listened he said, ‘Do you listen to Michael Youssef?’ He is not currently practicing the Christian faith, but he listens to Michael on radio. I don’t presume I might have encouraged him, but my main reason for sharing this is to say how happy I was to hear how the Word of God is going out into the aboriginal community. I praise the Lord and trust the work will bear much fruit for God’s glory.”

USA:

“Your sermon, Conquer Part 4: Heaven or Hell was amazing! What a wake-up call. Everyone needs this message desperately. This is the most important message I’ve ever heard! Thank you Dr. Youssef!”

Morocco:

“I’ve been searching for the truth for the past year and I know now that Christianity is the only true religion. I read the Bible. I know we are called to love each other and not to kill and fight. I want to become a Christian. Would you please tell me more about the Holy Spirit?”

Egypt:

“I want to know about Christianity and I have the desire to accept Christ the Lord of peace and love as my Savior.”

Indonesia:

“We have distributed Leading The Way Navigator devices to the Wana people of Indonesia. It takes 22 hours to go to the Wana village—12 hours by car, five hours by small ship, and five hours by motor bike. Most of the Wana people cannot read or write and are far from the modern world, so the Navigator has become a very effective tool in delivering the good news. Thank you for your partnership and your heart for our people in Indonesia.”

"ISIS Opened My Eyes": Watch Samar's Story

What is it like to be a Christian in a place where evangelism is illegal and conversion to Christianity is a capital offense? With a 92% Muslim population and no official churches, Saudi Arabia is one of the most difficult places to be a Christian. But as Muslims become disillusioned by ISIS, God is opening their eyes and drawing them to the Good News of Jesus.

Samar is an 18-year-old young woman from Saudi Arabia. From a young age, she questioned the beliefs of Islam. The violent acts of ISIS only reaffirmed her doubts. Would she continue to follow Islam -- or would she take the dangerous risk of following Christ?

Watch this courageous young woman’s story and hear how God used the broadcasts and personal follow-up of Leading The Way to draw her to faith in the Lord Jesus.

Your gifts are helping us reach people like Samar every day through 24/7 global broadcasting, personal follow-up, and Help The Persecuted. Consider partnering with us during this month’s June Gift Challenge and help us expand this crucial ministry work here at home and in the Muslim world.
