2015 Worst Year in Modern History for Christian Persecution

The Christianity Today article below is both heart breaking and motivating.

It is certainly heartbreaking to read of so many Christians suffering so much all around the world.

The introduction sets the tone:

“2014 was the world's worst year for the persecution of Christians in the modern era. Until 2015 surpassed it.”

At the same time the article is also motivating, or should be.  As we read we should be motivated to:

1.  Remember those who are suffering and do what we can to help (Hebrews 13:3).

2.  Become more bold to share the gospel ourselves without fear (Philippians 1:14).

3.  Remember the example of our Lord, who suffered for us and calls us to suffer for him (Matthew 16:24; Romans 8:17; 1 Peter 4:13)
