One of my favorite opportunities for reaching the Afghans abroad is coming up. Eid-Al-Adha. This is the time when Muslims remember the offering up of Abraham’s son to God. During this 3 day celebration, they themselves typically sacrifice an animal.
The issue of sacrifice is such a great one to point Muslims towards Christ. All throughout Scripture, we read about the prophets sacrificing. It always foreshadows the greatest sacrifice, Jesus Christ. And just like how God provided a sacrifice for Abraham, God provided for us. He came to us as Christ, and willingly went to the cross. Dying and rising again for our sins. No greater act of love.
This is the message, I hope to see Muslims hear. Please pray this Eid for all the opportunities that will arise to share. Please pray that they will agree that it truly is Good News.
