Holocaust Remembrance Day

I've heard stories of people who are still just finding out they are of Jewish ancestry - whose surviving relatives have been too afraid, angry and hurt to share with their family, children, grandchildren, that they members of God's chosen people. They are Jewish, and they have lived through hell on earth. With only a few survivors still alive it is important to remember what has changed history forever. My friend Lucy said it well, "we don't pray for the dead, we pray for the living." Pray for those survivors to encounter the Love of God, and through it allow forgiveness in their hearts to overcome them. That they might have life, and have it abundantly.

Peter Loth is a survivor of 2 holocausts, who was born in a German concentration camp and lived through the KKK's "nazi-like" reign in America. After having an encounter with God he learned the grace of forgiveness and through this, has been blessed with an astounding international ministry helping others to accept forgiveness through his own testimony! I had the privilege of meeting this man and hearing his powerful testimony a couple months ago, and I will never forget it. So in honor of today, Holocaust Remembrance Day, I included the link to a recording of his presentation in 2008, and although it's long, would strongly encourage you to make the time to watch it. This will be an invaluable use of an hour and will surely be the tool for the Lord to forever change your heart, if you let it.

I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
(John 10:9-11 ESV)

Love Always
