WEEKLY DEVOTIONALS – 2011
The Bible – Absolute Truth – Week 37
 
Finally, brethren, pray for us that the Word of the Lord
will spread rapidly and be glorified,
just as it did also with you;
and that we may be delivered
from perverse and evil men;
for not all have faith.
But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen
and protect you from the evil one.
2 Thessalonians 3:1-3

 
There are countless Christian martyrs in every Century.
 
The year is 1415:
Jan Hus (John Huss), a humble man, was a teacher.
He took the bold stand that Christ alone is Head of the Church.
At the Council of Constance in 1415, he stated with boldness:

I would not for a chapel full of gold, recede from the truth.
(Voice of the Martyrs, June 2011)
He was condemned to death, and as he was being burned at the stake stated:
Christ, Thou Son of the Living God, have mercy upon me.

 
The year is 1517:
Martin Luther posted his "95 Theses" on the church door in Wittenburg, Germany.
In 1521, Luther would appear before the Diet of Worms for one purpose:  recant his words.  He stated quite clearly:

Here I stand; I can do naught else; so help me God.

Salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, was his banner. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
He would later translate the Bible into the people’s German.
The Word of God set him free from the lie of works for salvation.
He was excommunicated from the Catholic church, and in his later years, began the Protestant movement and Lutheranism.
Many of Martin Luther’s contemporaries were martyred for their faith in Christ.
 

THOUGHTS TO PONDER THIS WEEK
 
John Huss and Martin Luther were vocal as to their heart belief in Christ.
Willingness to state belief in hostile situations can be deadly, as missionaries in the Middle East, China and India attest to on a daily basis.
Having wisdom in speech is given by God through the Holy Spirit.
  • Do you pray for opportunities to share your faith with others?
  • Are you in prayer for missionaries who are living in hostile countries?
