You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

Matthew Ayairga was not a Christian. He went to Sirte, Libya to find much needed work. One day he was captured by a group of ISIS militants. He was kept in prison for five weeks with other 20 captured Christians. After keeping them five weeks in prison, the militants took them to a beach to behead them. No one knows why the ISIS militants kidnapped him with the rest.
He was not a Christian yet then was forced to join other kidnapped men dressed in orange jumpsuits, kneeling on a beach, with their black-clothed attackers standing behind. The men wearing black, terrorists affiliated with ISIS were holding knives. 

Each man was then systematically beheaded. Every man who was captured, their lips proclaimed "Lord Jesus Christ," in their final moments. The militant who was holding knife to Matthew's neck asked him, "Do you reject Christ?" 

Matthew Ayairga would have had a much better chance at life had he rejected Christ on that day. He saw everyone who was knelt along with him beheaded. But then after reportedly witnessing the "immense faith" of fellow believers and their death, who all came from Egypt, he decided to become a follower of Christ himself. 

And so he boldly said to the militant, “Their God is my God.” And soon he was beheaded.

"Troubled soul, the "much tribulation" will soon be over, and as you enter the "kingdom of God" you shall then see, no longer "through a glass darkly" but in the unshadowed sunlight of the Divine presence, that "all things" did "work together" for your personal and eternal good." - A.W. Pink
