- Hebrews 10:32-39
- Psalm 16:11
- Psalm 73:21-26
Three things Christianity is not:
- Comfort and ease. – Christian persecution often feels like things stacked against you and is put out for everyone to see.
- Doom and gloom. – Even in persecution we can experience joy and great rewards.
- Fake and phony. – We don’t have to appear to be happy in midst of persecution. We can be glad because of what it means (that we belong to God).
One thing Christianity is:
- Totally worth it. – The great, eternal rewards that are promised far exceed momentary persecution and suffering.
