'Anyone who loses his life for my sake will find it.' (Matthew 10: 39)
Losing our lives because of our Christian faith may seem a remote possibility for us in Britain, but it is a reality for many Christians throughout the world. The Christian Church is the most persecuted religion of all, and in the Middle East many of the most ancient Christian communities are becoming extinct because of persecution and migration as a result of regional conflict. We need to hold our fellow Christians in our prayers and learn more of their plight. We may not have to face that level of persecution, but we might be ridiculed because of our beliefs. We are to persevere and not give up.
Lord, may we be faithful witnesses to Christ in our daily lives, mindful of the persecution suffered by our brothers and sister across the world every day. Amen.
