Killed for being a Christian. Scarey thought eh? Sadly it happens, mostly in other countries, but it does happen in America. I am sure more than we know.
If you had a gun to your head and was told to deny Jesus Christ or be killed would you say you say “I do not know Christ” to live or would you say “Yes, I am a Christian”?
In Syria and other countries Christians are being killed for being a Christian. Even in America, Christians are being killed.
Something similar happened to a brave school girl, Cassie Bernall, at the Columbine school shooting. She boldly said, “Yes, I am a Christian.” She was shot dead for it. But, she was given eternal life for it. She died for Jesus. Would you die for Jesus like that?
Today many Christians in the world are being persecuted, martyred, killed, beat, humiliated and even in prison for being a Christian. Would you gladly accept that any of those life losing punishment? Or would you deny Christ so you could go free unharmed and able to live?
This blog brief was to give you some food for thought to think about is Jesus made it pretty clear those who loses his life for Him gains life. See Matthew 16:25; Matthew 10:39; Mark 8:35; Matthew 6:25
