21 Martyrs

Most of us have been horrified by the events in the news recently. Churches around the nation are joining together on Sunday for a moment of silence to remember the 21 martyrs–all Christians from Egypt.  Right to the very moment when they lost their  lives, they testified to the faithfulness of Jesus. Check out this website and the following video:

We in the West have it so easy–we are barely even ridiculed for holding a Christian worldview–but it could change. In other nations where there is a price to be paid for being a follower of Jesus, one of the basic discipleship lessons is on how to deal with persecution.

It’s a small step, but let’s show our solidarity with our fellow believers by remembering the 21 martyrs.

    Yes, I definitely will join you in remembering these wonderful martyrs of the Christian faith. It will come to America, most surely…it is leaning that way already. As you have said, we have it very easy in this country and we, as a country, embrace sin in abundance. This will not go unanswered by Heaven! May He have mercy on all our souls!
