Today is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Please take a few minutes to watch the video and pray for our Christian brothers and sisters in North Korea.
This Sunday (11/3) is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Our churches need to be inspired by the stories of faithful Christians. Beyond observing this "holiday," here are some ways to inspire your church on a regular basis.
We worship Jesus comfortably in America. But that doesn't mean our faith is always strong. The world strangles it and tries to choke the life out of it! We need fresh inspiration from a "cloud of witnesses" to help us stay faithful.
A blacksmith forges steel by heating it and beating it. God also does this to forge us into mature Christians. He shows us tough love by letting us suffer for our own good.
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!
