Temptation 2

While it is always best to run immediately from temptation, there are those rare circumstances when you can’t run.  Consider the Christians in orange jumpsuits, being held by ISIS with knives at their throats.  Their temptation was to renounce their faith to save their lives.  I truly believe an exceptional circumstance prompts exceptional grace from our God.  I have read, and believe it to be true, that those Christian men saw Christ and were crying out to Jesus while being killed.  I believe it to be true, because the account of Stephen’s stoning  in Acts 7 describes his seeing Christ in the air as he was being struck with the stones.  I believe the exceptional grace is that Christ reveals himself and takes his loved ones to his side quickly lest they suffer.
