Follow Christ to martyrdom
What does it cost to follow Jesus?
For these men, for these women, the answer is: everything! Faced with terrible persecution, they were ready to bear witness to Christ, even at the cost of their lives. From the stoning of Stephen in first century Jerusalem to the Christians of Nigeria persecuted today by Boko Haram, these stories from around the world and from all centuries would like to invite greater fidelity to following Jesus. They remind us of the price of discipleship, at all times.
