¯And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.¯  1 Corinthians 12:26  

Dear %%firstname%%,

Christians are the single most persecuted religious group in the world, totalling 75% of all those persecuted for their faith.  Although this alarming fact is largely ignored by the mainstream media, this does not excuse the church in the West from any action or responsibility to the plight of the persecuted church.   Is not the measure of our ministry described in Matthew 25:35-36,40 the actual plumb-line for our actions?  Certainly Jesus cares about those members of His body being abused, and so should His followers. It is time to discover the atrocities  committed against the persecuted church, and defend our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world while we can.  

After all, we live in the information age, connected to the world through the world wide web, where one only has to Google ¯persecution¯ to be educated about this disturbingly growing trend.  In addition, there are many organizations and commissions that work to expose the plight of the persecuted church.   It is time for the church in the West to stop buying the lie of political correctness and work to help alleviate the sufferings of the Saints around the world. Jesus gave His true followers the mandate to find practical ways to serve the persecuted church, ministering to them in their suffering, as if we were ministering to Christ Himself!

So, what can you do to show your love of and care to Jesus for the persecuted church?  

Pray:

Act: Above all, make praying for the persecuted church your priority.  Be determined, by God's grace, to minister to the suffering saints, as you would minister to Christ Himself! Let's get started now!

Thanks for praying.   Your prayers make THE difference!  
Maranatha.  Jesus is coming soon and bringing His reward with Him.  Are you ready?  Is your family ready?
