Georges Houssney

Georges Houssney was raised in the predominantly Muslim city of Tripoli, Lebanon. He came to faith in Jesus Christ as a teenager. Soon God grew a deep love for Muslims in his heart, and he began to sense God's call for full-time service among them. Well-known for his work supervising the translation and publication of the Bible into clear modern Arabic, Georges and his family moved from the Middle East to the United States in 1982 to minister to international students. Georges is passionate about reaching internationals here and abroad with the great news of salvation. He writes and lectures internationally about ministry to Muslims, and he strives to awaken a new generation who will proclaim the gospel boldly. Georges is founder and director of Horizons International and does Muslim evangelism training through his training Engaging Islam.

    Wow, amen! Thank you and praise God for highlighting a truth that is so often neglected, and yet so clearly found throughout scripture and so clearly seen in our lives. No wonder there is such a thing as spiritual warfare (feel like I just had a “duh” moment there), when there is another kingdom bent on enticing and enslaving people! And no wonder backsliding and half-heartedness are so easy when we don’t even realize this!

    This is a great article! You’re hitting a central point of the gospel. We are citizens of the Kingdom that Christ came to earth to establish. We need to find our being, allegiance, and definition in that Kingdom not any earthly one that has been established by man, and thus at its root, sinful. One cannot serve two Kingdoms. Yes, Christ said give to Caesar what is His. In saying do your obligations that you must (Do so in honor of Him), but everything else is His. I need to crucify my culture, identity in this world, citizenship, etc… to the extent that the Kingdom of Christ overrules it. While I may be an American, I am a citizen of the Kingdom of God that Christ proclaimed, and if I am known for anything, I want it to be known for that. It is only then that I am known as being part of His Kingdom, can I in turn display, preach, and evangelize this world and advance the Kingdom by His power. Simply, I cannot share what I am not a part of and experiencing.

    Amen!
