Fear

Fear keeps many of us who are Christians from acting as Christians.

Fear of rejection keep us from sharing Christ with others.
Fear of how we will be treated keeps us from saying what is true.
Fear of being labeled keeps us from witnessing to those who need it most.

But, for most of us, we don't fear being killed for what we believe in. Most of us have no concept of what martyrdom would really be like.

This woman does, pray for her.

Tip O' the Hat to CMR.

Father Zakaria Boutros also knows what it is like putting your life on the line for Christ. He is a Coptic Orthodox priest from Egypt who has had to live in the USA, because of being arrested and threatened. He has a $60 million bounty on his head.
He still won't be quiet.
