Natasha brings up a good point ("She’s right, but she’s got a big mouth!"). There are times when we must take huge risks. Sometimes we must risk our lives to save the lives of others. Occasionally we must jeopardize everything we have to take a stand for what is right. When these situations arise, let us remember the "great cloud of witnesses" who are cheering for and depending on us and "run with perseverance the race marked out for us" (Hebrews 12:1).

Stephen did it. The ten Boom family did it. Cassie Bernall did it. They were ordinary people like us faced with an extraordinary situation. I pray that all of us will have the fortitude to stand when we are surrounded by an impossible situation, trusting God to the bitter end. "Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life" (Revelation 2:10 KJV).
