The Persecuted Church    Slavery                          

 The Persecuted Church

So they went on their way from the presence of the Council, rejoicing that they had been considered worthy to suffer shame for His name (Acts 5:41, NASB).1 John 15:21 "But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me. Acts 5:21 Upon hearing this, they entered into the temple about daybreak and began to teach. Now when the high priest and his associates came, they called the Council together, even all the Senate of the sons of Israel, and sent orders to the prison house for them to be brought. 1 Peter 4:14 If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 1 Peter 4:16 but if anyone suffers as a Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to glorify God in this name. (NASB ©1995)   Discover what it costs to be a Christian in some regions throughout the world. Many are cruel and unfeeling toward Christians, just as in Peter's day (Read Acts 12). "Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church." (Acts 12:1, KJV). Pray for the brethren throughout the world who work tirelessly and faithfully for the cause of Christ. What happened when Christians were martyred? "The word of God grew and multiplied." (Acts 12:24). And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation (Ps. 35:9). Rejoice and Be Glad (Christian Hymn). And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved [Matt. 10:22].

Modern Day Slaves

We have been blessed to have been brought into the American dream, but many throughout the world have no such advantage.
