Sunday Blog: The Ultimate Freedom

 

“No servant is greater than his master.  If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also.”  John 15:20

It is estimated by the World Christian Encyclopedia that more than 45 million men and women were put to death for their faith in Jesus Christ during the 20th century.  In recent years the estimate has averaged between 160,000 and 171,000 per year.  That’s more than 400 Christians per day.  

While we are deciding what to wear today, up to 400 Christians around the world may pay the ultimate price for their faith.  

Of all the things for us to be thankful for, thank you Lord that we can worship you freely.  My prayer is that you will bless our nation and always protect our right to worship you.  Amen
