Below is the devotion from Extreme Devotion today. This devotion book is filled with true stories collected by VOM (Voice of the Martyrs) and is available by email daily in addition to hard copy. As the body of Christ we should choose to make ourselves aware of persecution. No, it is not comfortable, no you might at first rather not know these things and how we must saddened the Father if that is as far as we go. I promise you blessings in the form of greater intimacy with the Trinity! The stories about children always ‘get’ me…I am humbled by their understanding & faith! Perhaps that is one of the reasons Jesus said we MUST become as a little child, our kind of maturity gets in the way. This past Sunday was IDOP (International Day of Prayer), I hope you make everyday a day of prayer for the persecuted church!
