Come and die

Dietrich Bonhoeffer is known to have said, “When Christ calls a man he bids him come and die.” As believers in Christ, we have been called to die to ourselves daily, but we also have been promised persecution.

This week, Thirteen-three is posting some blogs about why persecution isn’t a social justice issue as some have claimed it to be. I encourage you to check them out:

  1. Following Jesus is about dying
  2. Jesus promised that his followers would be persecuted
  3. God grows His Church through persecution.
  4. We are not trying to stop persecution.

Please pray for the persecuted Church today.
