Christian Persecution... What's the answer?

Ever since I became a Christian I always have had sympathy for persercuted Christians. When ever I heard a story about persecution I would always think God! How could anybody treat another living being that way?

I might have said some prayers, I  might have followed and liked charitys such as Open Doors on facebook, spread the word of persercution to my friends at Bible Study and signed petitions. Don't get me wrong all of these things are a great way of helping the persercuted church, but I just felt there was more I should have been doing.

Then a couple of days ago I found this video about this women called Hea Woo, she's North Korean and 70 years old. In the midst of a great famine in 1998 her daughter starved to death, Hea Woo's husband escaped to China where he found God, six months later he was captured by the secret police and killed. She  says " I was shocked to hear that my husband had become a Christian, but instinctivley I knew he had found the truth. It goes on to say,

If Jesus Christ was to walk the earth today, would you follow him?

Your probably reading this thinking yes that's a really good question but what does it have to do with the answer to Christian persercution. The answer is to be radical, after all Jesus was a radical! I mean he went against everything people at that time believed in, he went to the religious leaders of his time and told them they were spritually dead! That's the equivalent of going to someone like the Pope or the Archbishop of Canterbury and telling them that they are spiritually dead! And it for this that Jesus and his followers suffered persercution from many people. I mean Jesus himself was persercuted and nailed onto a cross. 

 So if God tells us to be Christ like, John 2:6 Whoever says he abides in him ought to have walked the same way, surely that means we should be radical and we should suffer persercution to be like Christ. It even says in 2 Timothy 3:12  Yes, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 

So the answer my friend is to be radical. Radical with your prayer. Radical in your actions. And to, uncompromisngly, unashamdly and passionatley follow him whatever the cost...

Mood: grateful
