Today marks the anniversary of Perpetua's death. While we're aware of persecution, our first-world bubble makes us forget the plight of suffering Christians. Perpetua went from riches to rags for her faith. Her story strengthens us in case our time ever comes!
Many proofs support the gospel. The most compelling of all is suffering. God uses our suffering to advance the gospel like nothing else. When we're faithful to the point of death, the church explodes with growth!
