“They did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” (See Revelation 12:11)
I have been hearing that in my spirit for weeks now….when lo and behold….
At the end of this small, but spiritually “nitroglycerin” packed “book,” we read:
“Martyrdom is not about CHOOSING death. It is about choosing WHO or WHAT we love the most. For this reason, we can live as martyrs EVERY DAY, if we so choose. We can set our AFFECTIONS on CHRIST, while putting every other priority in its proper place beneath our highest and deepest love. This does NOT mean that God does not care about even the smallest detail of our lives. However, restoration can only flood into our lives when we truly make Christ Lord.”
