If you kill me my soul goes to God, robbing your master of any chance to take it. If you torture me others will see Christ in my suffering, taking their eyes off you and me. If you set me free I will tell others about Christ, taking them away from you and the one you serve. So what will you do?
Matthew 10:26-33 (ESV)  “So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.  What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops.  And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.  Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.  But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.  Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.  So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven,  but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.
When the time comes, may God give me strength to live out this martyr’s creed.
