Re: Daily Devotional; formerly Chaplains Corner
I recall reading that story. Brings back memories.
My parents met a couple in Turkey many years ago. Then, as now, it was illegal to talk about Christ with anyone else. They were employed by a large company, but saw themselves as being missionaries to the Turks. Yes, it is dangerous, they said, but the Christians in this country may have to be in as many prisons as Paul was to evangelize this country, but it will be. Dad could see his determination as he said that.
Matthew 6:19-22 comes to mind...our hearts are where our treasure is.
So does Philippians 3:12-16
12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. 16 Only let us hold true to what we have attained.
Thanks again, from the "Amen corner".
