The Last Word

"We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed - always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body." -2 Corinthians 4:8-10 In America, we are blessed to be able to enjoy religious and economic freedom. We are able to go to any church we choose, build a business, go to school, or pursue a dream. Even though there are things we might want to change, on the whole, American is unlike many other countries in the world. I once heard a story about Christians in the underground church in China. A couple who worked with Campus Crusade for Christ had just come back from 30 years of ministry there. Many Christians are still persecuted for their faith in China. So, they often live underground with the faith. Before their death, many Chinese Christians record their testimony on video and request to have it played during their funeral service. During the funeral of the person, many people would accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior because of the testimony of their loved one who had passed, but had never been permitted to share this faith until then. Isn't that amazing? What could you do now with the religious and economic freedom you have available to you? Let's remember to be thankful for the freedoms we have, and do the most we can to magnify Jesus Christ in our lives and share His kingdom with others.
