When I look back on the martyrs, I wonder if my faith is strong enough to die for. If confronted with a choice would I forgo my faith in order to avoid torture or death. I guess its a good thing I live in a country where I will never have to face such a choice. Many over the years weren’t so lucky.
My faith has been tested by events in my life, and what I always found out was my faith served me better than anything else. I also found out that when my loyalty was put to an extreme test, it was my faith in God that gave me the strength to remain strong.
We all face assaults on who we are, and our faith is the last line of defense. Would I die for my faith? I am glad I have never been put to such a test, but I’d like to believe I would, if only for the reason that my faith is who I am. Without it, I do not exist.
