1. We let the world mourn over the loss of our Christian brothers and sisters because the world doesn’t know Jesus, but
2. we rejoice because our Christian brothers and sisters are present with the Lord and will receive a reward for their faith.
3. In the same breath, we pray that the testimony and faith of our Christian brothers and sisters changes the lives of ALL unbelievers and
4. at the same time we pray that their example of faith encourages and strengthens us in the event that God has also chosen us to face the same type of persecution.
That’s all I have to say about Christian’s being persecuted. As my pastor loves to say, “The Kingdom is Yours, the Power is Yours, so Lord let the Glory be Yours.” In Jesus name. Amen.
