"I admire Communists."
Those words are remarkable, especially when you know who spoke them. Who said them? Richard Wurmbrand, a pastor who spent fourteen years in Communist prisons.
Why did Mr. Wurmbrand say that he admired Communists? He said, " Many Communists were willing to die to defend their 'Utopia.' They were more committed to their cause than some I met in churches."
As I read those words, I find myself feeling convicted by the Lord. Am I willing to die for the cause of Christ? Am I even willing to be ridiculed for speaking out for God? These are hard questions, but ones I need to answer. I want to be committed. Are you committed?
