VerseD: Isaiah 53:5

But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5, ESV

Jesus bore our sins and shame once for all time. Nothing can change that. And putting your faith in Hos death and resurrection forever seals you for eternal life.

Persecution and the Believer Part 1

The Domain for Truth

Quick update to yesterday’s Pray for a Persecuted Church Right now: The authorities have let go of others but the four elders/pastors detained from this persecuted church have been punished and sent to jail for two weeks.  Updates will probably be delayed because of security concern.  This post is timely and relevant, as it is about what the Bible teaches about persecution and believers.

Establish the need: Have you thought about Christian persecution?

Purpose: Today we shall see four of eight truths the Bible teaches about Christians and persecutions so that you be strong in Christ when the time comes.

VerseD: Psalm 1:1-2

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.
Psalm 1:1‭-‬2, ESV

God’s Word does not change. Listening to “new ideas” or arguments against what it clearly says only leads to confusion and doubt. Trust the Bible.

Starter Questions for Evangelism

I like this list. Especially starting with “How are you?” Or something similar. I say especially, but I just like keeping it personal and personable. I also like how people like Ray Comfort and Todd Friel ask questions about people’s lives to make it more real and personal.

Someone in a social media group said this:

Please CONTRIBUTE TO A LIST here of “conversation starter comments or questions” for those of us who enjoy spiritually fruitful and engaging conversations with non-believers and/or nominal-believers (those who would identify as christian), but often struggle to get such conversations started due to being introverted and/or somewhat socially awkward.

Pray for a Persecuted Church Right now

Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.
Hebrews 13:3, ESV

Let us lift our brothers and sister in Christ up to our Father.

Just received word that one of the churches I have taught overseas at this moment right now have all their members and elders/pastors detained and interrogated by authorities. I want to ask if you can pray for these persecuted Christians. This is very heavy for me to hear.

VerseD: James 1:17

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
James 1:17, ESV

Because God never changes, we can trust His promises, including that He cares for the needs of His people, often more than we understand.

VerseD: Zephaniah 2:3

Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land, who do his just commands; seek righteousness; seek humility; perhaps you may be hidden on the day of the anger of the Lord.
Zephaniah 2:3, ESV

God is returning in judgment. Sooner than we may think.
Be humble and realize your need for His salvation through Christ’s work and from breaking His commands, and you will escape His wrath.

VerseD: Joshua 1:8

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Joshua 1:8, ESV

Is the Bible so much a part of your life that you can not seem to help but think and talk about it and its Author throughout the day and into the night?

VerseD: John 7:38

“Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”
John 7:38, ESV

As Christians, we should not be able to help sharing the truth, grace, and love of Jesus Christ as the Holy Spirit moves in and through us.

VerseD: Hebrews 12:2

looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2, ESV

We can look to the One who remained faithful through beatings, crucifixion, and death to support us and encourage us in faithfulness, knowing the joy that awaits us with Him in eternity.
