I have lots of books lying around in my office. One that I pick up from time to time, Jesus Freaks, reminds me of what it has meant to be an active follower of Christ in places and times of persecution – everything from Nero's Rome to Hitler's Germany, Hussein's Iraq, and today's ISIS. People who have followed Christ throughout history have in astounding numbers chosen to die with Christ rather than conform to the ideologies and cultures of the world.
The things we tend to feel so well insulated against here in our comfortable America are increasingly on our minds. Our national leaders are speaking in more ominous tones than we're comfortable with - fast spreading Ebola in Africa, beheadings and sobering warnings of terrorist groups, porous borders where killers could cross with relative ease...all serious stuff. But for those who belong to Christ, we should be hearing our spiritual ringtones about now. God is calling to say, "If you are ever gong to do something about the people who don't know Jesus, do it...now!" In the midst of all the disturbing headlines are some life changing messages from God.
