Patrick…

Born-Again Christian.

We know so much about this man mostly from the two books that he was able to write and have survived 1500 years to be re-printed many times. He tells us something of his life as a Roman Britain and his ignorance as a young man.

He tells us about his capture by Irish raiders and being sold into slavery, he goes on to tell us about the harshness of life before his conversion and after. An important area to mention in relation to the struggles of many believers today.

Patrick tells us about Celtic-Gael culture, his escape and his visions of needing to return to a people he would fall in love with. Patrick was indeed a great man, an even better believer, always emphasising the need of Salvation and personal repentance.

Patrick built five Christian centre and one missionary outreach centre, for those who would take the Gospel message to Cymru/Wales, Curnow/Cornwall, and Alba/Scotland.

Psalm 25:11,  John 3:15-17,  36,  Romans 11:5-6,  1 Corinthians 5:8-10,  Ephesians 2:7-8, 1 Timothy 1:15-16,  Hebrews 7:25,   1 John 5:11-12.

Stephen. First Martyr.

The cost of being a Christian.

Everyday and today Christians will be murdered for bearing the name Christ or followers of Christani- Christos. Many who die are nominals, just born into their Church labels and nothing more.

For others who have faith and are either born-again or converted it is their victory to share in the sufferings of Messiah. Many believe that the ancient middle-east Church is at an end, but they are wrong!

Persecution will always lead to a new and bigger movement of God. Stephen was the first to die, then that early Ekklesia was scattered from Jerusalem. Now look at it today it is a global faith.

Psalm 98:2,   Acts 7:60-8:1.
