Commanded To Remember

Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you are also in the body.  Hebrews 13:3

We are commanded to remember.  Remember what?  Remember those Christians who have been imprisoned and otherwise mistreated for their confession of faith.  This is not just the stuff of ancient Rome.  It happens today around the world in many different forms – from intimidation, to repression of religious freedom, to imprisonment and even death.

This week is the International Day of Prayer for those persecuted around the globe.  Who decides on the day?  I have no idea but it is a perennial command of the Christian Faith.  A day to focus on it is a wonderful thing.

Remember…  and pray.
