A few things I've learned (and relearned) from being here in South Africa, reading a bunch of great books and hearing some awesome speakers.
Awful things have happened to so many people. Did they not love God enough? No. In the bible it says that if you truly live this life, you WILL be persecuted. Satan isn't after those who sorta kinda are Christians. He's after those who are actively pursuing the kingdom of God. But God's protection is deeper than physical harm. It's a guarantee that I'll see him when my final day ends. The couple of years of suffering we may endure here on earth for God's glory is nothing compared to an eternity in his blissful, sweet presence.
