Running for the Hills

Matthew 24:15–22

Jesus words in today’s passage indicate that it is not necessarily wrong for believers to flee when calamity comes or when men rise to persecute the church. Certainly, if we are caught we must be willing to die for Jesus; however, there is nothing commendable about looking for martyrdom specifically. Pray today for the suffering church around the world to have wisdom to know when to stay and when to flee persecution.

1 Samuel 27:1–7
