How to Handle Persecution and Opposition

How should Christians handle the problem of persecution?

Introduction:

2 Timothy 3:12 – All who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. Every Christian sooner or later will endure persecution. This has been true throughout history.

Persecution may come from civil rulers, employers, fellow-workers, teachers or professors, neighbors, friends, relatives, family members, people of false religious faiths, or even other members of the church.

What Sin Has Done for You

Things in life are not always as advertised. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Have you ever bought a product only to be really disappointed in it? Karen and I once bought a used freezer. When we first examined it, it felt cold inside. But it was sitting in a garage in the wintertime. The man said it worked; but when we got it home, it did not work at all.

Commercials can make a product sound so good you are supposed to think you can’t live without it. But many of the products advertised are not good for you at all. Often the reality is entirely different from what is advertised.

Likewise, sin puts on a good front, but the reality is much different.

Ephesians 4:12,16 – The church was organized (verse 11) for the purpose of equipping members to accomplish works of service so the body can be edified (built up – verse 16). Like a good team, we must learn to work hard, work smart, and work together.
