Every day, all around the world, precious Christians are being persecuted for their love for Jesus.
Many times these Christians secretly meet in underground or house churches. Usually there are very, very few copies of the Bible available to whole groups of believers.
Sometimes portions of the Bible are carefully removed and bound together so that believers can take small portions of God’s Word with them to secretly have in their homes for one week at a time.
One week Boris has 1 Thessalonians and the next week Maria has 1 Thessalonians. And the following week Boris has James.
When the Bible is so scarce, those under persecution’s pressures are starving to have it in their hands, through their eyes and into their minds.
“… like newborn babes long for the pure milk of the word, that play it you may grow in respect to salvation …”.
(1 Peter 2:2)
Whether persecuted or not persecuted yet, we should always be starving for the Bible.
