Persevering Through Persecution | Hebrews 10:32-39
Aaron Gray | May 29, 2016
- Read Matthew 5:10-12 and discuss the nature of persecution. What is and isn’t persecution?
- How can we remain faithful to Jesus even in the middle of persecution and opposition?
- How can we help each other maintain a gracious and loving attitude even when others oppose, mock, or revile us for the sake of Jesus?
- What does it mean to remember our “better and abiding possession?” How does this truth free us from anger and fear?
- Read Ephesians 6:12. When facing opposition, how can we help each other remember who the real enemy is? How does this truth help us?
- Pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. Pray for their protection, and pray that God would enable them to remain faithful.
- Pray that we, as disciples of Jesus, would persevere no matter what opposition we face.
- Pray for God to save and transform those who currently persecute Christians.
