A Jewish prince and son were on a Nazi train. The prince knew that all the Jewish passengers on the train were bound for death. People around him were either weeping inconsolably or fervently praying.
The prince's son cried out, "Father, I am scared!"
The prince closed his his momentarily in anguish then he opened his eyes and looked squarely at his son. He tenderly put his hands on his sons small shoulders.
"Son," the prince slowly said, controlling the fear behind his steady voice. "Regardless of what happens to us, I want you to always remember that we are royalty."
What is faith? Abel's faith was so good that he was killed by his brother. Likewise, John the Baptist faithfully preached the message God had given him, and he was beheaded for his efforts. We need to realize that faith has nothing to do what is going on outside with you, but everything to do what's going on inside. Faith is trusting God as a friend to lead you and me to do whatever He asks regardless of the consequences.
- Luke 18:8, Ephesians 2:19, Hebrews 11:35-40
