A Month of Thankfulness: Day 6

Day Six: I'm thankful for the freedom to worship! Today I can get in my car, drive to church, and worship God with other Christians. Maybe you say "So what?" to that. Then read this quote from a source that knows how easy we have it here in America: "You may be accustomed to going to church, openly worshiping the Lord, and reading your own copy of the Bible. What if even gathering even a few Christians together was illegal in your city, and there was only perhaps one copy of the Bible in your entire town? For people in Colombia, living like this is reality." This was taken from the Voice of the Martyrs website. Please go there to learn more about the Persecuted Church and to find out how to pray for them better.

Matthew 5:10-12 says: "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."

Exercise your privilege to meet together and worship today with other believers! There may come a day when you can not. Pray that it doesn't !!

God bless you!
