We, as part of the body of Christ and as His church, have become complacent and distracted by many things. I have been guilty of it as well. Being overseas workers does not make us completely immune to losing our focus. We are here to bring glory to God. We are here to show Jesus to those around us.
What would you or I do if faced with the decision to stand up for our faith in JESUS? Would we deny Him and walk away unharmed? Would we pray for those who persecuted us? Could we forgive them? We are living in times when we need to be prepared to answer these questions.
