Opposition or persecution

We are not alone in being opposed or persecuted

We are not alone in dealing with opposition or persecution



Jesus was Persecuted – John 15 v 18 – 21 (p129)

But people may listen



Christians throughout the World are Suffering – 1 Peter 5 v 8 & 9 (p278)

But the devil can be resisted



People before You were Persecuted – Matthew 5 v 10 – 12 (p5)

But it should cause us to rejoice



God Provides a Way Out – 1 Corinthians 10 v 12 & 13 (p201 & 202)

You will not be tempted beyond what you can bear



The Lord is Faithful – 2 Thessalonians 3 v 3 (p245)

He will strengthen and protect you



The One in You is Greater than the One in the World – 1 John 4 v 4-6 (p284)

We are from God




Opposition is a good sign

Opposition is a privilege

Opposition is a cause to be glad

Opposition is always inferior to the One on our side
