As hatred increases against Christians all over the world, yes even within our own America; I often wonder if God will look down and find any faithful in the Earth.
Then I read the stories like this one about Pastor Saeed Abedini and others like Miriam Ibrihim, and my faith is bolstered.
Yes, a human faith, even as small as a tiny mustard seed, is multiplied 100-fold and sustained by Almighty God (Mat 17:20, Luke 17:6).
When the time comes to face real adversity, even unto death, Christians can believe beyond a doubt that our heavenly Father is the sustaining power for our faith, as witnessed in the courage displayed by Pastor Abedini. Praying for Pastor Abedini and his unwavering witness of Christ.
“Father, increase our faith.” Luke 17:5
