TOPIC: THE COST OF BEING A CHILD OF GOD
TEXT: MATTHEW 10 : 24 - 33
If the Lord Himself was persecuted for His teachings and unique lifestyle, His followers would face even more persecution as it is clearly written that, as believers, we must follow the footsteps of our Master. Therefore, we should always give good discipleship training to believers to help them withstand persecution by individuals, groups or people in authority.
However, the knowledge of our true position as disciples will also strengthen us to pray and trust our Master to defend and protect us. We should stand firm without denying Him so that we would not be denied on the last day.
Why are you being persecuted?
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in the midst of pur trials so as to follow in Your footsteps and endure to the end, Amen.
