Last week, the press reported about the murder of Gayle Williams, a Christian aid worker murdered by the Taliban in Afghanistan for allegedly preaching Christianity. I salute the faith of this young woman whose life was cruelly cut short by religious fanatics. Gayle is one in a long list of modern day martyrs that reminds us of the high cost of discipleship, a price worth paying because God gave His best for us and He is worth giving all up for! Please join me and salute Gayle and the many others, some of whom we may never know of, whose faith are prize jewels in God’s crown!
~ A word for your week ~ Rev 12:11
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death” Gayle and the many others like her have successfully and victoriously overcome the enemy, Satan, the devil. No more shall the enemy tempt them or try them again, they went to glory in faith, not changing their confession or testimony because they know Him and that He was worth it! They esteemed Him much more than anything the world has to offer – Heb 11:24-26. And nothing could separate them from the love of Christ – Rom 8:32. I believe the testimony of Gayle and others like her should challenge every one of us to be willing to give our all for the King and His kingdom. Nothing in this present age should be able to compare and compete with our love for Him. There should be nothing, absolutely nothing that should have a higher priority than serving Him in our lives. Remember that He is before all things – Col 1:17. I strongly encourage you to make this the golden rule of your life! Let Jesus Christ be before all things in your life! He certainly is in mine.

As you begin a new week, I prophesy that…
Ø Your week shall be one of reaching forth for those things that matter and count for eternity
Ø Your days shall be filled with kingdom exploits and kingdom victories
Ø No more shall you know vanity and emptiness of life. You shall henceforth live a Christ-centred life
Ø Your life shall bring glory and honour to the Most High
Ø As you take a stand for Christ, the entire power and might of heaven shall stand for you!
Ø Mighty shall your testimony be both in heaven and on earth
Have a great week!
