I was recently given a copy of A First-Class Fighting Man which has blessed me so much. Maybe it had a greater impact considering we’ve been praying and following the story of Pastor Saeed in the Iranian prison.
And I’ve had to ask myself the question, “What will I do when my turn comes to stand for my beliefs?” Are we ready to face the same test of faith that these giants of old did?
A First-Class Fighting Man is a book of diary entries and letters between a Christian conscientious objector in World War I and his wife. It reveals the hardships, yet the unwavering faith of Verne Kessler and his wife, Estella.
You will be blessed to read of how others before us stood firm in their unwavering faith. May we take encouragement and learn how it is possible to be faithful in the midst of persecution!
