The Persecuted Church

Today is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, so my pastor preached a sermon on how easy it is to forget our brothers and sisters around the world who are being persecuted, and what that says about us. One illustration he used was particularly indicting: "If I forget our anniversary, that doesn't mean I don't love my wife, but it does say alot about how much I cherish her. Forgetting the persecuted church is not the same thing as forgetting God, but it does say alot about how much we cherish Him."

Ouch.

"Remember those who are in prison as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you are also in the body."
Hebrews 13:3
