I really don’t know how to put into words what I am feeling … I have heard of the pregnant woman in Sudan being threatened with the death sentence if she doesn’t renounce Christ. As I say this I sit and drink my warm cup of coffee, put on my nice clothes, get in my car, take my kids to a nice safe school, go to my safe job, get a paycheck … have my every need met. I would be lying if I said I did not feel guilty.

It breaks my heart and convicts me that most of us sit inside and watch “American Idol” while those in India are threatened with prison, yet they still go out and share Christ. I do not know what’s wrong with me and the whole American church. But I am convicted to change.

God is doing a mighty work in my soul. I believe He is waking me up from the American dream I didn’t even know I was in. I am trying my best to obey and just do the next thing God tells me to do.

I hope that we will all continue to be like the early church to give and share and love in Jesus’ name wherever He has placed us, or calls us to go.
