PERSECUTED CHURCH

Hello Saints,

I just came across this video and thought why not share it with you all. It happens to be a timely reminder of what real love means since Valentine's day is just a few days away. A lot of Christians will argue the idea of celebrating Valentine. I am a firm believer of using every given opportunity to share my faith. And Valentine's day happen to be a celebration of love for many worldwide. Isn't this just a fantastic time to share "Jesus" the very essence and true meaning of Love?

"There is no greater love than to lay down one's life down for one's friends."-- John 15:13


Real love isn't always pretty, romantic, or even pleasant. As this video shows, real love means sacrifice. Valentine's Day, Celebrated in memory of a Christian martyr, should help us to remember that true love is Jesus and this could mean martyrdom, death and persecution.

In this movie, you will see images of believers in countries that are opposed to Christianity. You will hear of the stories of their faith and their death. This Christian video communicates the essence of true love, and evokes compassion for Christians around the world who are suffering for their faith.

You and I are blessed to live in countries where we can freely and willing live and share our faith with no fear of persecution, being tortured and tormented. Why don't we take advantage of this great gift to help share and spread the good news - our Faith to more and more people. Starting from our families, friends, neighbours, work colleagues and just anyone we come in contact with.




1 John 3:16, "This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers."

Please share your thoughts, blessings......................

  1. So true the statement: "Real love isn't always pretty, romantic or even pleasant."

    Love is tough and a lot of hard-work. Unfortunately, Hollywood, movies and romantic novels have created a placid version of love, a selfish, 'what's in it for me' type of love.

    May God open our eyes to truly see what 'real love' is.

    Thank you for sharing this. I'm tweeting it right away.
