The Mystery of Love

5 Oct

The Mystery of Love…

This is a true story of Richard Wurmbrand, a believer who was imprisoned for his faith in communist prisons in Romania. There was a young man named Vasilescu, a criminal in Romania, who was put in charge by the communists to torture the ministers whom they had imprisoned for their faith.

Then the communists turned against Vasilescu. They put him in prison and tormented him until he was dying. As he was dying, at the same time, the one who he had tortured the most, a minister named Iscu was also dying.

But now Vasilescu was filled with remorse. He asks Isku to pray for him and wanted God’s forgiveness. The minister called two prisoners to bring him to Vasilescu’s bed. There, the one who was tortured ministered to the one who had tortured him.

He said, “If Jesus could forgive me, then I must forgive you. If I can forgive you, then Jesus who is greater than me also forgives you.” If this one who was tortured could forgive his torturer, so can you forgive that one who has sinned against you. That’s the love of God.

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13-14

Do something for yourself today, for your health, for your peace of mind – forgive.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
