Understanding the Iraq Crisis

From the desk of Dr. Michael Youssef

Dear friends and partners of Leading The Way,

Linked below is a special video I want you to watch. For those of you who have seen news reports of the persecution and political turmoil taking place in Iraq and have asked, "How can I pray? How can I help?"—this video is for you.

Last week I joined my son Joshua, Executive Vice President of Leading The Way, in the studio to put together a special video addressing the many questions we were receiving about what's happening in Iraq. I hope it will help you better understand what is going on in the Middle East and what we as Christians can do. You can click below to watch it now.


I want to let you know that, by God's grace, we are already on the ground broadcasting the Gospel, following up with listeners and viewers, and helping the persecuted in this region. God has given Leading The Way a unique platform to reach the world's most hostile areas with the Truth of Christ, and in these moments, we must never forget the power of the Word of God and the prayers of His people. Let us press on with this crucial mission.

In Christ,

A few days later, a voice in me told me to turn to the same radio frequency again. I listened two months to your programs and afterwards I accepted Jesus into my life.

Put Your Faith into Action

From the desk of Dr. Michael Youssef

As the day of the Lord draws near, and as more and more people are turning their backs on the infallibility of Scripture, God’s Word has never been so desperately needed. In these days, I long to see this generation equipped to face every challenge, trial, temptation, and decision with God’s wisdom.

I know how challenging it can be to live the life of faith in difficult times, and that’s exactly why I wrote my new book, God, Just Tell Me What to Do. In its pages, I apply 12 principles from the epistle of James to the problems and questions we face in the 21st century—like how to discern godly wisdom from worldly wisdom, how to manage God’s money, how to tame our tongues, how to endure trials, how to overcome temptation, and how to call upon the God, Just Tell Me What to Do - Book Imagepower of God in prayer.

The book of James is an intensely practical and realistic book for the age we live in. Technology is constantly changing, but the human condition remains the same. We still sin, suffer, struggle, fight, gossip, grieve, repent, and pray in the same old ways. If we apply the timeless Truths found in this letter, we will discover new depths of courage, victory, spiritual maturity, and joy we have never known before.

I hope you will take a moment to read a chapter excerpt of my new book and request your copy when you give a one-time gift of any amount to Leading The Way this month*. Your gift will help us proclaim these same Truths to more than 190 countries in 23 languages, sharing the Gospel with those who desperately need it.

In Christ,

The Heart of the Good Shepherd

By Michael Youssef, Ph.D.

What do the religions of the world have in common? They all attempt to pursue and appease their gods, who have distanced themselves from humanity. That is a key difference between these religions and the Christian faith. Christianity is the only faith in which the one true God reaches out to humanity. He pursues and seeks us out; we are the ones who are lost—not God.

We can rejoice not only because God seeks us out, but also because we can know our Creator personally and have a thriving, fulfilling relationship with Him. We can talk to Him as we would a close friend. We can know the very heart of our true God. In essence, Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship.

In the Gospels, we see Jesus conveying this message over and over again. At the beginning of Luke 15, we see the religious leaders murmuring against Jesus: “But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, ‘This man welcomes sinners and eats with them’” (Luke 15:2). The Pharisees considered anyone who admitted his need for God’s forgiveness to be ignorant and weak. Though they studied the Scriptures, they were far from knowing and comprehending the heart of God.

Jesus was not intimidated by the Pharisees’ intellectual arrogance or elitist attitude toward faith. He responded to their muttering by telling the parable of the lost sheep:

“Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them,” Jesus said. “Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep’” (Luke 15:4-6).

Can you imagine how these powerful leaders reacted to being compared to a simple shepherd? They would never lower themselves to laboring through the muddy hills. Instead, they would chastise the hired shepherds and order them to search for the sheep.

In Ezekiel 34, the shepherds of Israel—the religious leaders—angered God because they kept the food of God’s Word for themselves instead of spiritually feeding their flocks. God warned them, “Woe to the shepherds of Israel who only take care of themselves! Should not shepherds take care of the flock?” (v. 2).

The Pharisees of Jesus’ time were shepherding the same way. Yet our God does the searching for His lost sheep and rejoices when He has found one.

Prayer: Father, thank You for pursuing me when I was lost in sin. Thank You for being an intimate and loving God. Amen.

“If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?” (Matthew 18:12).
