Beheaded for their faith in Jesus Christ

I read today that three Nigerian pastors were behead during recent clashes between the Nigerian government and Islamic extremists. Go here

A few reactions after reading the story:

1. Christians in America are blessed. We have the freedom to worship and serve God, yet the American church is spiritually cold. Go figure!

2. These men did not die in vain. Jesus said, "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord" Revelation 14:13. Indeed, all who would live godly in Jesus Christ will be persecuted. 2 Timothy 3:12

3. Pray for these dear pastors' families, their churches, and that the cause of Christ would exponentially grow in Nigeria because of the deaths of these men of God.
