Presently in the United States there is a conflict raging, configured in millions of immigrants improperly following the laws and sovereignty of this land. While I agree abiding by U.S. laws is imperative, I cannot imagine a more loving God Who placed Manuel into His hands, knowing the grief and strife to come, but also knowing that in the end, Manuel would become a greater citizen – that of heaven. While Jesus said to “give to Caesar what is Caesar's” (Luke 20: 25b, NIV), which, in effect, speaks to a country’s regulations, he was not remiss in offering compassion to those in need.
When we discourse on the matter of illegal immigration, let us not forget to stand for the poor, the neglected, the widowed, and most of all, the ones lacking Christ in their lives. May we give even our very country so that all may see the light in us, for the Lord has said that “He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9b, NIV).
