GOLAN HEIGHTS, Israel, Aug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The fastest-growing body of believers in the world today is within the borders of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What do we do with this incredible news?
And we lean in.
Surprisingly, because "every joint" supplies movement for the Body of Jesus (Ephesians 4:16), even our persecuted brothers and sisters in the Persian East encourage us to love and obey our King through the ﬁnal numbered days of this passing age. And we can encourage them.
Jesus is committed to the proclamation of the Gospel everywhere (Matthew 28:20; Acts 1:8). It requires everyone who loves Jesus everywhere to play their role. What does this global, rapidly-reproducing movement look like? It looks like consistent, faithful verbal and lifestyle witnesses of the worth and supremacy of Jesus—the kind of living testimony that makes disciples who make disciples.
"DISCIPLES FORSAKE THE WORLD AND CLING TO JESUS TILL HE COMES. CONVERTS DON'T. DISCIPLES AREN'T ENGAGED IN A CULTURE WAR. CONVERTS ARE. DISCIPLES CHERISH, OBEY, AND SHARE THE WORD OF GOD. CONVERTS DON'T. DISCIPLES CHOOSE JESUS OVER ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING ELSE. CONVERTS DON'T. CONVERTS RUN WHEN THE FIRE COMES. DISCIPLES DON'T."
- Leader, Iranian Underground Church
We know we're called and commanded to "take up [our] cross," (Luke 9:23) "put [our] hands to the plow," and "not look back" (Luke 9:62). Yet our lives, calendars, and phone notiﬁcations ﬁll our ears with almost indiscernible levels of white noise that, if we're honest, can nearly drown out any other voice. How do we love and obey Jesus in the post-modern West? How do we share the "good news"—indeed, the best news—with our neighbors in a meaningful, redemptive manner?
The persecuted church of Iran is a persevering church. Listen to the testimonies carrying the life and light of Jesus into one of the darkest regimes on earth and discover the power and commitment of Jesus to "draw all men to [Himself] (John 12:32)."
