God’s call to His people is both to defend the vulnerable, and to invite those who are far-off spiritually into faith in Jesus, moving from alienation to citizenship in God’s kingdom.
God has always seen and heard the cries of displaced people through history, even up until today. His church has always been called to be a place that welcomes strangers into community and worship.
