Be informed and inform others - II Corinthians 1:8 We do not want you to be uninformed. Research and discover what is happening to Christians worldwide. Be informed about Christians who daily face persecution because of their faith in our Lord. Be concerned and pray - Hebrews 13:3 Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. Do not forget that we are all members of the same household of faith. Be involved and do something - Proverbs 31 8-9 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly, defend the rights of the poor and needy. Be prepared and willing to respond to the needs of the persecuted Christians around the world. Give - Romans 12:13 Share with the saints who have needs. Bless others out of the resources that God has blessed you with.
And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it ...
1 Corinthians 12:26
Remember the prisoners as if chained with them--those who are mistreated--since you yourselves are in the body also.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings ...
