Jesus > Iran

No one can take my life from me. I sacrifice it voluntarily. For I have the authority to lay it down when I want to and also to take it up again. For this is what my Father has commanded. Jn. 10:18

Jesus was nobody’s victim. He was a willing sacrifice. He has power over death, hell, and the grave. Today Iranian pastor Youcef Nadarkahi rejected the offer to recant Christ in order to commute his death sentence. Christ is more powerful than the political and spiritual forces he faces. Youcef is no victim either. Even if he dies.

Lord, impose Your power,  grace, peace and authority in this situation.
