Italy, here is a case in point where religion becomes not a help, but rather a barrier to the true Gospel of Jesus being brought to the ears of the people. I’m hopeful to learn about some of these barriers coming down or being moved out of the way. I’m optimistic about the move of God taking place in the hearts of the people of Italy. I pray that the people of Italy, a people steeped in proud tradition, will come to discover that Christ want’s to also be a part… in fact, the main part of their tradition.
Like the walls that fell in Jericho, may the walls of religion fall too, making a way for the people of this country to come freely to Christ and discover the fullness of religion that in all actuality resides in relationship with Christ.
