In the following video clip below, a young man is commanded to remove his cross and recite the Shahadah, children are taught to serve the false god Allah, and an Islamic evangelist weeps for a lie. I wish I could share the Gospel with that evangelist and all the men, women, and children in this video; I wish I could show them all the truth, love, and grace of Christ.
Here is the clip:
Jesus said, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it, but whosoever will lose his life for My sake the same shall save it. For what is a man advantaged if he gain the whole world and lose himself or be cast away? For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of Man be ashamed when He shall come in His own glory, and in the Father’s, and of the Holy Angels” – Luke 9:23-26.
Lord Jesus, we pray that we will never be ashamed of You. Help us to be bold in the face of the persecution that comes from seeking You alone. Help us to never seek to save our lives but to lose our lives for your sake. We humble ask You to be the Lord of our lives. Amen.
