What An Honour To Take The Blows Meant For Him.

Our persecuted Christian brothers & sisters need more prayer than ever before. With the rise to power of ISIS in Iraq, Christian persecution has become so horrific that I find I am unable to write about what is happening. I cannot bear to see any more graphic images or hear any more gruesome reports of genocide.

A few weeks ago, I listened to a sermon by one of my favourite teachers, John MacArthur, from Grace To You (gty.org), entitled "Finding Security in This Troubled World" (Sermon code 80-407). He said this about our persecuted brothers & sisters: "What an honour to take the blows meant for Him."

Let us focus on our Lord Jesus Christ. His grace is all we need!

2 Corinthians 12:9
(This picture quotes the Complete Jewish Bible translation of the verse, which is my favourite.)
