Scripture:

  • Hebrews 10:32-39
  • Psalm 16:11
  • Psalm 73:21-26

Three things Christianity is not:

  1. Comfort and ease.  – Christian persecution often feels like things stacked against you and is put out for everyone to see.
  2. Doom and gloom.  – Even in persecution we can experience joy and great rewards.
  3. 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:

  1. Totally worth it. – The great, eternal rewards that are promised far exceed momentary persecution and suffering.
