Yesterday, we remembered those who’ve given their lives in service to America. We honored you and showed our appreciation for your sacrifice. Thank you. As we remember those who’ve suffered for our freedom, we should take a moment to remember and honor those who’ve suffered for our right to live with Christ. To those who have suffered for us to know Christ and to make him known, thank you.
In a previous article, I asked a question: Would your Christianity survive in other parts of the world? Now, I’m asking (myself included) if your American Christianity would survive in other parts of the world?
This type of suffering isn’t necessarily losing our second job or having our car repossessed, as we would call a trial in America… Examining the examples of the early disciples, we see suffering leads to social outcasting or even physical death. That is the type of suffering we can expect as followers of Christ.
