Each month VOM produces "The Jesus Freaks Minute," a daily radio-PSA that shares the stories of the persecuted church with Christian radio listeners all over the United States and around the world. Here's the script for one of the spots that will air this month, a spot entitled, STEP CAREFULLY:
[TOBYMAC:] Hey, this is TobyMac with truth every Jesus Freak should hear from the Voice of the Martyrs.
[VOM:] Decades ago, Richard Wurmbrand, the founder of The Voice of the Martyrs, watched a new crop of inmates arriving at a prison gate.
A murderer, sentenced-to-life, stood in chains also sizing up the new arrivals. The criminal recognized one of the recently convicted men. It was his son. The younger man glared at his father, “Was it for this that you brought me into the world?”
The hardened criminal dropped his head. He could not speak.
Wurmbrand summed up the lesson: “Be careful of your steps. You will not be the only one to walk in them.” For ways to follow the steps of Christ, go online to persecution.com.
[YOUR TURN:] Are there ways you are intentionally choosing steps that you hope your children will follow? Share how in the comments to this post.
