Katrina's Musings (Gospel Meditations/Missions--Day 12)

Persecution and opposition have always accomplished the advance of the Gospel, but we miss something very important if we look at persecution as simply "bad things happening to good people." Persecution is tied to the very nature of the Gospel and is essential to its progress. Our persecution is linked to Christ's own sufferings (Philippians 3:7-10, Colossians 1:24, 1 Peter 4:12-13). Our persecution has many divine purposes, even if they don't make sense to us (Genesis 50:15-21, Acts 7:54-60, Acts 9:10-15). And our persecution glorifies God. His Word advances as His people demonstrates trust, hope, love, and grace while suffering for Him (2 Corinthians 6:3-10, Philippians 1:12-14, Hebrews 10:32-36, 1 Peter 4:14-16). 

Let the Gospel be evident in your response to persecution.
