A vision today, on persecution.
There really are two kinds of persecution. It is as if we are standing on a Rock – Jesus Christ, while around us swirl the waters of the world. In the bay next to us the waves crash and roar, the persecution both physical and intense.
For us it is different, more insidious. An undertow that constantly tries to pull us off, away, out to sea and our destruction. The waters appear calm, but it is deceptive. No crashing waves. Nevertheless the persecution is oh so real, just that we do not perceive it for what it is because it is less visible.
