If the world hates you, know that it hated me before it hated you, if they persecuted me, they will also persecute you...  John 15: 18-20 

Today in programming we watched a video on North Korea in preparation for a future teaching concerning how we take our freedom for granted.  (both personal freedom and spiritual freedom)

The film talked about the way the soldiers identify Christians.  One way is despite the meager amount of food people have, the Christian's will always give their last bit of food to save someone else.  They immediately are thrown into a concentration camp and isolated from everyone.

The film went on talking about many other aspects of life over there, but that one fact kept coming back to me.  The question that haunted me was, "would I be identifiable as a believer"?  Would I give up my last bit of food to save someone else, probably a stranger, and most probably not a fellow believer?

I would like to think I would, but I had to be honest and say, I'm not sure...

It is widely recognized around the world that we are among the most lost because we have no clear concept of who God is, or our need of Him.  So, would I be identifiable as a child of God if I was in another country where persecution took place?
