The Christian Martyr Perpetua

I was very touched listening to brother Jeff Pollard’s sermon from last Sunday, to hear the recounting of the story of the Christian martyr Perpetua.  This was a young woman who had just given birth to a child, and was relentlessly implored by her father to sacrifice to the emperor.  She refused and remained steadfast to her Saviour unto the end.  It is well for us to keep such records as these before our minds, as we live in an age where hostility and persecution against God’s people is mightily increasing.
