Be Persecuted for Christ’s Sake!

Open your Bibles to Romans chapter 5 and read verses 3 thru 5 together.

God’s Word promises us trials, tribulations, and persecution as a follower of Jesus. It’s probably not our favorite verse to throw on a pillow or a plaque at home, but God allows us to go through trials to be sanctified, growing to look more like Jesus. These tribulations don’t stand a chance against our hope in Him.

Discuss the following questions together as a family:

1. What trials, tribulations, or persecution have you faced in your life? Have you ever considered giving up on Jesus? Why or why not?                                                                                  

2. How does tribulation produce us to grow in perserverance, character and hope?                       

3. How have you been persecuted for your faith in your life? How did you overcome it?

Practical: Pray for the Persecuted Church daily.
