The definition of jihad is, “a struggle or fight” (usually to mean against the enemies of Islam). From the book, “No God but One”, the author writes: “… it was Muhammad himself who taught that fighting in jihad was holy and good. Fighting in jihad was so good in Muhammad’s eyes that there is nothing equal to it in this world. When a man asked him if there was any deed in the world equal to jihad, Muhammad responded, “I know of no such deed”.
1. How different could the world be if Muslims had the opportunity to know 1 Corinthians 13 vs jihad?
2. Do you believe that everybody should have the opportunity to know God’s love?
Challenge: Muslims don’t know God’s love. They don’t know that they have salvation through Jesus; that they don’t have to engage in jihad. Pray that all Muslims may have the opportunity to know God and experience His love.
