I am sharing this from the NKJV of the New Spirit Filled Life Bible Third Edition. Do you fill persecuted or that you are being put through trials and tribulations? Jesus told us that we would suffer these things, please know that it isn’t forever Jesus loves us and He is coming back soon.
Growing in Godliness
Jesus warned that we would experience persecution in this world (John 16:33). The apostle Paul tells us we are to endure these trials with faith and patience, knowing that it is for the kingdom of God that we suffer. We are also to intercede and pray for other believers and look expectantly for the return and vindication of Jesus Christ.
Endure persecution with faith and patience. Be willing to face persecution, knowing that your suffering is for the kingdom of God. Know that God will punish those who persecute you.
Follow Paul’s example of prayer and intercession for those being persecuted in the church. Pray that they would fulfill all of the good purposes of God for them and that Jesus would be glorified through them.
If you haven’t accepted Christ as your savior yet and would like to do so, please pray these words:
“Jesus, I acknowledge I am a sinner and I am in need of salvation. Thank you for your sacrifice on the cross. Come into my heart and make me new. Thank you for your gift of eternal life. Help me to learn to walk with you now. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
If you prayed that prayer, please tell someone that can guide you in your next steps in your relationship with Jesus.
