Bible Challenge – 2 Corinthians 1

February 7, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

“For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.” v.5 (NLT)

As Christians in America it’s hard for us to fully understand the magnitude of persecution.  The fear of being made fun of or mocked causes many of us to stay silent. We try to spin it, and it may even sound good to others around us, but if we compared it to the persecution of Christians in others parts of the World, we would feel foolish for even thinking we had it rough!

Regardless of the type of persecution, the Bible says that we will be persecuted because He (Jesus) was persecuted.  We may try to avoid it, but there are sure to be times that it is unavoidable.  In fact there will be times that if we do avoid it, we will denounce our faith in Christ! But when we endure it by stepping out in Faith, the Comfort of Christ is there to  embrace us!  It’s a type of comfort we will never feel until we step out of our comfort zones to live boldly for Christ regardless of the persecution we may face.

Today, will you live for Christ regardless of the persecution you may face if you are found out? If someone asks about your faith, will you blow it off or boldly declare and speak of what Christ has done for you and offers to do for them?
