I enjoy the freedom that is afforded us here in this country. Believe me, after traveling the world, I am thankful for these freedoms. I want them maintained as much as the next guy, and I am ready to be active in their protection.
But, what if we should be thrown in jail? We will join the likes of Jesus, Peter, Paul, Dietrich Bonnhoffer, and countless others before us and at present that have been incarcerated for their faith in Jesus Christ.
I really don't have a martyr complex but I am well aware of what Jesus said:
I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. John 15:19 NIV
If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. John 15:20 NIV
Lord, may I remain ever faithful to you!
