#2 Lessons from God’s School – The Persecution Test

There is a price to pay for following Christ.  Jesus said if you want to follow me, take up your cross daily.  He also said if the world hates you, it hated me before it hated you!  As we take our stand for Christ, we will discover opposing forces.  They will want to silence our witness!  This should not be a surprise!  Persecution is required so we should expect it.  Persecution is allowed by God and it reveals the depth of our character .  Jesus said that we are blessed when people insult, persecute and falsely say all kinds of evil against us because of Him!  Our rewards will be great in heaven!  See you Sunday as we come to understand how to live our lives for Jesus under persecution so that we can someday hear the words of our master, Well Done, good and faithful servant!Be in prayer this week as our 20 missionaries go and work in Los Angeles, California!  They will be involved in a great work of spreading the gospel in a dark place!
