Ask a VOM Worker: VOM’s Mission

VOM

Question: Is The Voice of the Martyrs’ goal to end the persecution of Christians?

A VOM worker’s answer: There is always a price to follow Jesus; it costs. The activity of spreading the gospel always has a cost.

The Bible tells us to “take up your cross daily” (Luke 9:23) and “count the cost” (Luke 14:28). The Bible requires that we be faithful witnesses under the leadership of Christ. We are his “personal property.” It’s up to him what happens after that.

There is always a price for being a faithful witness in a fallen world. The Voice of the Martyrs is not trying to end persecution. Evangelism causes persecution; we are aiding evangelism.

Christ is worth it — no question. It’s a good price even if I pay everything.
