Tomorrow China “celebrates” the day it became a communist country. For a reason that I cannot figure out; the Empire State Building is even commemorating this. Having recently been to China, I praise God for it (not that I did not praise God for China before, but before I went I cannot say I actually thought about China that much). China is very beautiful, the people are extremely interesting, and the Gospel is spreading like wildfire. But, since China has been adopting a more “western” type of business model and culture, people from the west often forget that China is still one of the most notorious countries for abuse cases. This especially includes abuses and persecution towards Chinese Christians and Chinese Christian Churches. (To read more click this: Voice of the Martyrs-China).
As you see China in the news tomorrow, remember the persecuted church in your prayers. But also thank God that despite the persecution, the gospel continues to spread.
