Persevering Through Persecution | Hebrews 10:32-39
Aaron Gray | May 29, 2016

Discussion Questions

  1. Read Matthew 5:10-12 and discuss the nature of persecution. What is and isn’t persecution? 
  2. How can we remain faithful to Jesus even in the middle of persecution and opposition?
  3. 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?
  4. What does it mean to remember our “better and abiding possession?” How does this truth free us from anger and fear?
  5. 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?

Prayer Points

  1. Pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. Pray for their protection, and pray that God would enable them to remain faithful.
  2. Pray that we, as disciples of Jesus, would persevere no matter what opposition we face.
  3. Pray for God to save and transform those who currently persecute Christians.
