“Enter in by the narrow gate…”
Verses like this one can be confusing to the modern Christian mind. How does this apply to my daily experience? The answer to this question and others lies in a secret truth that the early believers closely guarded. It was the secret of Martyrdom.
In The Following of Christ, Greg Gordon gives us a glimpse of what following the Lord truly meant to the Early Church. Join hands with your nail-pierced Lord’s hand and learn of that great cloud of witnesses (Hebrews 12:1) who have gone before us, some giving their very lives.
“This little book helps us to not only admire the ancient Christian martyrs, but to examine our lives and prepare for own martyrdom should God will it. As Greg reminds us, God grants special grace to those whom He calls to suffer by the sacrifice of their lives, enabling them to be fearless and even triumphant.” – David Servant, Founder of Heavens Family

Many believers in North America know little of suffering in the Christian life. We try and avoid suffering at every turn. The Following of Christ calls us to embrace suffering and join with the throng of believers throughout history who have suffered for the Name of Jesus.
