Preparing for Persecution

Preparing for Persecution

John 15:18-16:4

  1. What is Persecution?
  2. Christ puts the church on a collision course with the culture.
  3. Why does Persecution happen?
  4. When we come to Christ our loyalties change.
  5. The world is opposed to Christ because you cannot have two Lords.
  6. How do we respond to persecution?
  7. Scripture prepares us for persecution because it feeds the areas under attack.
  8. We should not expect to be treated better than Jesus.
  9. The Holy Spirit enables us to not only endure persecution but to thrive in the face of persecution.
