1426163_10152538970789156_1955504315_aToday, like every Wednesday, we will remember Saeed Abedini.

We do more than just remember, however…we stand with him by using our social media to advocate for his release.

We ask that you change your Facebook profile picture to his and that you “like”  the “Free Saeed” Facebook page and participate in some of the activities that promote his cause.

We ask…that you remember him and his family in prayer…and that you refuse to give up on efforts to secure his release.

From his wife, Naghmeh,

Romans 12: 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Here is my two cents on current events:

RADICAL HATE can only be overcome by RADICAL LOVE. God’s solution to sin was a painful death on the cross while we were still sinners and while we were still His enemies. That’s God’s solution. Radical Love. A love that hangs on the cross and takes all of the insults, abuse and beatings and can still say “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”

Our president can not solve the problems we are seeing rampant around us. No government or governments in the world can solve it. No money in the world can solve it. No human plans can solve it (no matter how wise they may seem). The United Nations can certainly not solve it. There is only one solution and as Christians we have it to offer to the world!!!

Islam at its best is a religion. A list of does and don’ts. People are tired of religion. The world is thirsty for love. As Christians we have access to the only Love that can change a person within. We have access to the Love that can truly fill the emptiness within.

We might not live in the Middle East, but there are Muslims all around us where we live. Each one is an opportunity to love.

  One Response to “Free Saeed”

  1. Such a powerful word from Naghmeh. Our Lord said that ‘all men will know you are My disciples by your love, one for another”….. and how profoundly this visible attribute is lacking in our current church culture….

    The on going imprisonment of Saeed, is a huge lesson in the Sovereignty of God. His ways are simple not our ways. In spite of the literal millions of prayers for his release, he is still there in an Iranian prison….still alive in spite of his injuries and weaknesses.

    I continue to add my prayers, whatever they are worth. Lord have mercy on Your child Saeed and his family. May Your Name be glorified.
