Persecution is part of the cross we need to carry and bear on our journey of pilgrimage as Christians. Jesus told His disciples that they should not allowed their hearts to be troubled and that in the world they would have tribulations, but they should be of good cheer because He has overcome the world (John 14:1, John 16:33). Since our Lord Jesus Christ was reviled, tortured, reproached etc. while on earth because of the message of the gospel, there is no way we can prevent the same occurrence happening to us. We only need to take our anchor on the word of truth to go through it without compromising our faith, knowing that our coming out of it is always glorious. Our prayer is that as we go through this study, may we behold wondrous things from it which we make us stand firm and unmovable for God till eternity in Jesus Name.
