And now, friends, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers. In this way God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, that his Messiah would suffer. Repent therefore, and turn to God so that your sins may be wiped out. –Peter the Apostle (Acts 3:19)
SCRIPTURES: (from the Lectionary)
PRAYER FOCUS: The Persecuted Church
Every so often we find a picture, or a video, that captures thousands of words. This is one of those times. The video is entitled, “A Letter from the People of the Cross to ISIS”. It’s a little over three minutes in length.
Worldwide, of those who are persecuted for their religious beliefs, about 75% are Christians. Pray for those who share our faith, but not our freedom.
It’s Monday Morning. This week, even this day, Christian, your brothers and sisters will die for their faith. Will you live for yours?
