Max Lucado, senior pastor of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, and best-selling author has offered three major lessons Christians should take from Hurricane Harvey, noting that Jesus Christ warned of coming disasters. Lucado revealed that like other ministries, church services at Oak Hills had to be canceled on Sunday, as the region dealt with the devastating effects of the storm.

At least 29 people were reported dead as of Wednesday, CBS News said, with historic floods spilling over into Louisiana, and 4 to 8 inches of rain forecast in Tennessee and Kentucky through Friday as well. Lucado urged Christians to pray and to help relief ministries that are on the ground assisting victims and people in need, but also to take important spiritual lessons from what is happening. MORE
