What persecutions I endured. 2 Timothy 3:11
As shocking as it seems, a private Christian school in Tampa, Florida, was forbidden from offering an opening prayer during a high school football game last fall—even when playing against other Christian schools in its own stadium. Thanks to a group of Christian attorneys, an appeals court reversed that decision.
The blatant anti-Christian attacks by our secular society have intimidated many Christians in the western world, but God is on our side in this battle for truth!
According to the Bible, every godless culture will view Christians with hostility; and according to Church history, every generation of believers has faced opposition and hatred. The Bible says, “Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12). But Paul also told Timothy to persevere and lean on the “Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (verse 15).
God is at work in our lives, even when we’re being pressured or persecuted for our faith. Don’t be intimidated by the world. Be motivated by the Word!
