GUARANTEED PERSECUTION

If Jesus was persecuted for being about His father's business, why would
we think we would escape persecution for being like Christ? There is little
or no persecution of Christians in America. Are we not living as godly as we
should? These days it seems many Christians hide their testimony to keep
from offending others or to keep from being ridiculed. If we suffer for being
like Christ, we are blessed. And who knows but that someone's heart was
ready at that moment to receive the words we failed to speak.

Heavenly Father, we ask that you would give us boldness and courage
to live and speak your words of truth and do the deeds that show we
belong to you, no matter what the cost is to us. In Jesus' name.

Read 2 Itmothy 3:12

"In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will
be persecuted." (NIV)

"Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer
persecution." (KJV)



"A Christian is someone who shares the sufferings
of God in the world." Dietrich Bonhoeffer
