Reconciliation through Spiritual Discipleship
What drives Heart for Lebanon is the compassionate heart of Jesus Christ. Experiencing this unconditional love is what influences the refugee families to ask questions like, “Why are you helping me?” This gives us the opportunity to share our own experiences of forgiveness and reconciliation. Heart for Lebanon believes reconciliation through spiritual discipleship is a process and not an event. Heart for Lebanon’s goal, after building authentic relationships with families, is to invite them to attend Bible studies, women’s gatherings, and special events in order to share the gospel with them.
All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:18-21 NIV
