Live the Faith! A Message from Iraqi Christians

October 19, 2021

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”

– 2 Corinthians 3:17

Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:

Do you take your freedom for granted? Have you ever thought about what it might be like to not have the freedom to practice your faith?

Take this lesson from our brothers and sisters in Iraq: do not take your freedom for granted. Be always grateful to the Lord for the gift of religious liberty; for the ability to freely and legally come together to worship Him.

And let us pray that our Christian brothers and sisters who lack that freedom may soon find it by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

“And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

– Matthew 16:18-19
