Jesus Freaks

If you have never read Jesus Freaks by dc Talk I eagerly suggest you do! It is an amazing book filled with true stories of Christians who were martyrs for their faith. The book is truly inspiring and encouraging to read.

Here are a few quotes from the book...

"If we do not radiate the light of Christ around us, the sense of the darkness that prevails in the world will increase."
Mother Theresa
Gave her Life to the poor in India

"Lord, I am your messenger. Throw me like a blazing torch into the night."
Mary Skobtosova
Died in a Nazi gas chamber
Many believe she died in the place of another woman picked to go to Ravensbruck Concentration Camp.
Germany, Easter Eve, 1945
The Camp was Liberated by the Red Cross the next day.

"God didn't call us to be successful, just faithful."
Mother Theresa

"It is not my ability, but my response to God's ability that counts."
Corrie Ten Boom
Hid Jews in her home to protect them from the Nazis during World War II

Hope these encourage you to continue to shine your light to the world!
God bless
