There are multitudes of Christians just like Pastor Saeed who are imprisoned only because they love Jesus. We in the U.S. forget (or are unaware of this) because of the freedom to worship that we enjoy. Many are not aware this freedom is being quickly eroded. Because we are so accustomed to this freedom we believe everyone surely enjoys the same freedom, that we will always have it and we can't imagine otherwise. As a wake-up call read this article on persecution of Christians throughout the world--including the U.S.
Let us not forget to pray for these courageous men & women and their families that their sacrifices won't be in vain but that others will see their love and come to the Savior, too.
Don't you find it unbelievable that Islam tries to characterize itself as a peaceful religion when they persecute, imprison, torture, and murder others who don't agree with them? How many people of other religions are imprisoned for their faith in Christian countries?
Hopefully, these like Pastor Saeed, who are willing to die for the Lord are a testimony to those who hate them. No matter how many they kill to try to silence them, or how often they deny it, Jesus is the only Son of God and the only way to eternal life. He loves and forgives these torturers, but they must see that and turn to Him to be saved from an eternity in hell.
Let's pray for the captors as well as the captives.
