This Sunday at Church: Remember Pastors of Persecuted Churches

I think of the Christians mentioned here. I think of the underground churches all throughout Asia, Africa, the island nations. I think of those in nations where “unofficial” churches are attacked by those in the official religions, even state-sanctioned churches. I think of the rise of hatred toward Chrisitianity even in our Western society.
Keeping historical persecution and currently oppressed Chrisitians in mind also helps us to prepare for when we may/will face persecution, but it also helps keep us focused on God and His Word: “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.” (Matthew 5:11, ESV)
There is joy in persecution, but it does not mean it is easy. Let us pray.


The Domain for Truth

This Sunday at Church I want to encourage you to do the following: Remember Pastors of Persecuted Churches.

VerseD: Ephesians 4:31-32

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
Ephesians 4:31‭-‬32, ESV

Remember: rarely do others attack us, rather they are attacking Christ. He can defend Himself.
Show the love, kindness, and grace to others (even in church) that He has shown through Christ.
