Revelation 2:10

A video by Islamic State, posted on social media sites on 19 April, shows the killing on 30 Ethiopian Christians in Libya, some beheaded on a beach and some shot in the desert. IS’s commentary justifies the brutal violence by arguing that the Christians should have converted or paid the traditional Islamic jizya tax (a sign of subjugation under Muslim rule). Pray that the families of the victims will be comforted by the knowledge that their loved ones died as martyrs and that Jesus the Living One promises them a crown of life (Revelation 2:10).
