Every now and then, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I share e-mail I've received. That is what I am doing, today.
Near Christmas, in December, I received an e-mail from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), again. Just so you know, I receive them, fairly often.
Here's what the e-mail said (I copied and pasted it):
She was the only Christian woman in her town, and now she faces execution in Pakistan for her faith.
Why? Because she's a Christian who offered a cup of water to a Muslim woman at work.
Now this mother of five faces the death penalty unless the Supreme Court of Pakistan reverses her unjust blasphemy conviction.
This is her final appeal. This is her last hope.
She will be hung for her Christian faith unless we speak out.
At the ACLJ, we're aggressively advocating around the world for Asia Bibi's freedom as the highest court in Pakistan hears her appeal.
We've mobilized our global offices in Europe and Pakistan, which have successfully fought against these blasphemy laws for years. Now, we're fighting to reunite Asia Bibi with her husband and children. She desperately needs your voice.
Take action with us for this persecuted Christian woman's freedom.
Sign Our Urgent Petition: Save Asia Bibi from Execution.
When I received this e-mail, I had already written blog entries up to and including Christmas and New Year's. But, now... I'm sharing this with you.
Why? Because our sister in the Lord, truly needs you to help her.
Asia Bibi has been imprisoned by Muslims for so long, now. And, her time of imprisonment is coming to an end.
She needs to be released, for all she did was offer a cup of water to a Muslim woman, at work.
She basically knew of that Islamic woman's burden of being thirsty. And, tried to help the Muslim woman... by being kind and loving to her.
Thinking about how Asia Bibi was truly doing what God told us to do, brought to mind Galatians 6:2, "Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ."
Even though she had a good heart, and tried to help the Muslim woman, she is being persecuted for her faith... because, she's Christian. A Christian, who did her best to fulfill the law of Christ... of loving others.
If she is not released, she will be hung. Her life will end, here on earth.
Knowing she's a sister in the Lord, I know that if she is murdered, she will be alive, in Heaven. And, will spend eternity with God, because she is trusts in/believes upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.
For this, I am thankful. And, always will be.
But, I know she has family and friends, who would like her released. Especially, since she had never broken laws or hurt anyone.
So, my friend... please do what you can to help. And, pray.
Thank you. May God bless you...
Until next time...
