Thank You Father God!
…yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service.
And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor me.
(John 16:2-3 NKJV)
And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
(Matthew 10:28 NKJV)
Today I am thankful that I live in a country where I am free to worship and serve you and need not be afraid of reprisals.
In particular, I think of the recent bombing in Sri Lanka and in general, I think of places such as North Korea, Pakistan and Sudan, where persecuted Christians cannot be open about their faith.
Forgive me for sometimes taking this freedom for granted and not always appreciating the privileged position I hold here in this nation.
It seems awful thanking you for not experiencing something that other brothers and sisters in Christ have to suffer, particularly in light of the recent happenings in Sri Lanka. I am nevertheless appreciative of my position here in the UK.
Thank you Father God.
