Culture and Christianity

To My Friends In India

I am going to take a break from my stepfamily blogging today and speak to the hearts of my Indian followers. God has placed it upon my heart to reach out to you and tell you how loved you are. Your life has purpose, value, and meaning! You are children of the King, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. NOTHING can take Christ away from you! May the verse below bring you comfort. But beyond comfort, may it bring you unbridled JOY knowing there’s VICTORY in the blood of Jesus! Your suffering on this earth is NOT in vain, and Jesus has already won the battle between good and evil!

Why do I write this to you? It has been brought to the attention of our church that India is now on the “top ten” list of difficult places to be a Christian. Persecutions can and will happen in any country, but I had not seen India on this list before.

My friends, we are praying for you. It is becoming more and more difficult to be a Christian in AMERICA as well. Those in our country who claim to value and support “freedom of speech” are often times the same people trying to minimize Christianity. We are asked to accept every religion right down to the worship of trees, but mentioning Jesus is taboo.

I don’t care. I would die for my Savior. I know the sting of death was paid for, in full, on the cross. I am not fearful of man and his rules.

Let this verse bring us comfort always!

“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fear for today nor our worries about tomorrow – not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’ love.” Romans 8:38 NLT
