This week pastor Don focuses on the subject of persecution. He reminds us that in the Bible and in much of the world today where the majority of Christians live, there is severe persecution. Many Christians in the West today have enjoyed a time of relative peace, and we have come to expect, not persecution, but rather respect and acceptance of our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. However, Jesus warned us plainly that if the world persecuted Him and hated Him, it would do the same to His followers. The question is, are we ready?
