Great Sermon! This is a topic very close to my heart. I was very pleased and uplifted by this message because I think about the persected church continually. Financially sponsoring the spread of the Gospel in destitute and persecuted lands along with providing food aid and shelter to the persecuted church in Vietnam, India, China, Burma, Nepal, Africa and others to me is the best spent money ever. No pastor you didn't offend me- I was delighted with your message and am looking forward to hearing the rest in this series. I am glad there are voices here in the west, like yours, who speak so passionatley about these persecuted brothers and sisters of all ages. I do not mean to imply I am a person of great personal courage because I admire these Christians above all other Christians. I know I am not worthy to shine their shoes. I often wonder how I would do if I were to walk their path of suffering and deprivation. I have a strange mix of feelings when I think about them. On the one hand I would like to numbered among this heroic elite and on the other the thought of what that would involve quite o'er crows my spirit.

Just today I was feeling annoyance about all the mail I get requesting money and prayers for persecuted brethren, in spite of the fact I was well aware of Heb 13:3. This was really a convicting sermon to me. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness!
