The true meaning of Easter is found among the persecuted

On this Easter, while we celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ our King, we should also take time to remember Christians all over the world who are persecuted on a daily basis for their faith in Christ. There are so many who are no longer with us, simply because they decided to become a follower of Jesus, and there are many others who live in fear over the same decision. Houses are burned down and bombs go off in churches all the time — surely it is happening even as I write this post.

But I think it is in these persecuted Christians that the true meaning of Easter is so vividly seen. After all, the purpose of Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection was to reconcile us to Him.

We live in a free country where becoming a Christian bears no penalty. We are free to pray and worship Jesus as much as we want. But so many others around the world face punishment, even death for simply proclaiming Jesus as their savior. And yet they do it anyway.



Below is the compelling story of Fatima, a young woman who came to know Jesus in one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a Christian: Saudi Arabia. Watch her story and then pray for all the Christians around the world who are standing with Christ in the midst of such persecution.

 
If you are so willing, please help persecuted Christians by donating to Walid Shoebat’s organization called Rescue Christians using the link below. It’s the only group who actually goes in and rescues persecuted Christians in Pakistan and Syria, relocating them to safer countries.

Save a Life

And as always, have a wonderful Easter!
