Jesus Can Put a Head Back On

Posted by Robert Sagers

John Piper today points to a story about three Nigerian pastors who were beheaded for refusing to convert to Islam.

I once heard Russell Moore say that though a Christian may have his head taken off for the sake of the gospel, the good news is that King Jesus can—and someday will—put that head back on.

Pray for the families of these martyred brothers, and for all persecuted Christians around the world—that they may be bold and loving for Jesus in the face of those who wish them dead.
