This Sunday at Church: Remember Pastors of Persecuted Churches

I think of the Christians mentioned here. I think of the underground churches all throughout Asia, Africa, the island nations. I think of those in nations where “unofficial” churches are attacked by those in the official religions, even state-sanctioned churches. I think of the rise of hatred toward Chrisitianity even in our Western society.
Keeping historical persecution and currently oppressed Chrisitians in mind also helps us to prepare for when we may/will face persecution, but it also helps keep us focused on God and His Word: “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.” (Matthew 5:11, ESV)
There is joy in persecution, but it does not mean it is easy. Let us pray.

Daniel
