When militants from the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) moved into northern Iraq, they begin identifying Christian-owned property. Families would find the Arabic letter “nun” (noon) or letter “n” painted on their homes, churches and businesses. The single letter conveyed the powerful accusation that occupants and owners were “Nazarenes”; they were people who followed Jesus of Nazareth rather than Islam. They were Christians.
That provokes a question, “R-U-N ?” Is there enough evidence in your life to label yourself a Christian? “R-U-N ?” What does being labeled “n” in our context look like? “R-U-N ?” Why would anyone put their life on the line like that anyway?
Don’t run from God, but run to Him chasing life in Christ
