“Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God.” 1Jn 5:1
“…for everyone born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith.” 1Jn 5:4
Over two thousand years, millions of men and women, old men and children were willing to pay the highest price for their faith in Jesus Christ. By martyrdom they joyfully united with the One they loved so uncompromisingly on their earthly pilgrimage. Their faith overcame. Today they dwell in the glory of Jesus in heaven.
One of them is St Clement, a faithful disciple of the Apostle Peter, who came from a patrician family related to the Flavian dynasty of emperors. The dramatic fate of his family culminates in their conversion to Christ and the following of Him. Clement experienced the mighty work of God’s grace and power in Peter’s presence; he saw the conversion of pagans and their rebirth in Christ. Peter’s love for Jesus and His Church, which was born through Calvary, brought Clement to steadfastly follow Christ; later he became Peter’s successor, and ended his life as a martyr in the Crimea.
The story behind the life of Peter’s disciple in the book “Clement, Disciple of the Apostle Peter” gives insight into the healthy roots of Christianity and a personal relationship to Christ, in whom we have salvation.
“There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind, by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12
