MARTYRS : Loving Your Enemies


A Christian was sentenced to death. Before being executed, he was allowed to see his wife. His last words to his wife were, “You must know that I die loving those who kill me. They don’t know what they do and my last request of you is to love them, too. Don’t have bitterness in your heart because they kill your beloved one; we will meet in Heaven.” null These words impressed the officer of the secret police who attended the discussion between the two. Afterward he told me the story in prison, where he had been put for becoming a Christian.
-From “Tortured for Christ” by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand
