Josef Tson, a Romanian follower of Christ, suffered intensely for his faith at the hands of the Romanian government. Josef shared this powerful testimony at Desiring God in 2000. He entitled this message Persecution and Christ-likeness. It is available to download for free from the Desiring God website.
This message is full of magnificent statements like, "If all of your enemies are God's instruments, why are you afraid?"
Let me encourage you not to deny yourself the tremendous blessing of listening to this excellent message.
