The history of God’s great work in the earth has left a ‘great cloud of witnesses’ (Hebrews 12:1,2), totally committed believers whose lives were sold out to God and who lived by faith in his promises. Because their eyes were fixed on Jesus they would continually say “What would Jesus do, say or feel?” and seek to apply that to themselves in their own circumstances. Such believers have invariably suffered for their faith and obedience to him. We call them ‘radicals’ because they keep returning to their roots (Latin: radices) and their stories are a reminder of what Paul says in 2 Tim 3:12, that “…everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” As you prepare for the next phase of your mission, let us introduce you to few of them.
