Our Treasure in Jesus
God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people in Bosnia grasp the Good News that we will be presented to you perfect IN Christ! (Colossians 1:28)
Testimonies from Around the World
This year, we are highlighting real stories from around the Muslim world. Pray that God’s kingdom comes in Bosnia and all around the globe!
I was never very religious, and I was a Muslim simply because my parents were. I believed that God was distant and angry with me. I suffer from a rare allergy condition. I feared for my life, and in order to overcome my fear I tried to pray but felt nothing. Then I tried to memorize the Quran. but as I read it, I found many contradictions and the words disturbed me.
I felt that God wanted me to ask one of my friends about the Messiah. I didn’t know that she was a Christian, but she prayed with me and quoted Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” I loved those words, and I began searching for testimonies on the internet. I researched until finally I felt that I was wasting my time by prolonging my decision. I knew the truth, and I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ.
“Then Paul answered, “What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be imprisoned but even to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.”” (Acts 21:13 ESV).
Lord Jesus, raise up a generation of followers in Bosnia so burdened for your glory among the nations and so convinced of your eternal worth that they might say with passion and hope, “I am ready not only to be imprisoned, but even to die…for the name of the Lord Jesus.”
