I’m reading Tortured for Christ and it’s an inspirational and eye opening book.
The cruelties inflicted on Christians in communist countries are evil beyond compare because, as Richard Wurmbrand says, the presence of evil in it’s darkest state was seen in the eyes of their torturers.
What’s amazing to discover is that the Christians never hated, belittled, or backstabbed their tormentors.
The grace and love of Christ compelled them to see these men as who they could be.
All around the world, persecuted Christians share this same view.
I want to follow their example. I want to love others with the pure love of Jesus.
The level of selflessness expressed by my persecuted brothers and sisters calls me to action, challenges my apathy.
If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it.
Go to The Voice of the Martyrs website to request the book (it’s free).
