“Remember those in prison as if you were there with them; and those who are being maltreated, for you like them are still in the world” (Hebrews 13:3, NEB).
Someone in China handled each of the little white lights on your Christmas tree. Many of those assembling the lights, crimping by hand without tools, are prisoners. Many of those prisoners are held unjustly and persecuted for their faith in Christ. In fact, according to WorldServe and Michael Card, for some reason many of those who are putting together lights are persecuted Christians.
Michael Card, WorldServe, and the ministry of the late Larry Burkett are trying to make us aware of persecuted Christians worldwide with the “Lights of Christmas.” The idea is to be reminded when we look at the lights strung across houses, trees, yard decorations, to think of and pray for these persecuted prisoners.
