Be Sure Your Persecution Is For Righteousness Sake | Video

..And so it’s the same with righteousness – we learn His will ..His ways. Righteousness means to be accepted – it’s acceptable before God. It’s accepting His teachings ..His Word. It is allowing the Word to change us and mold us more and more into His image. It’s all about learning God’s will .. obeying that will. This is the idea of righteousness. If that is working in your heart your life – and you desire all of that which I have just said – then you will be persecuted because of that. ‘ Be Sure Your Persecution Is For Righteousness Sake. ‘

You’ll be persecuted because you love the Lord Jesus Christ.. Because you want to obey Him. You will be persecuted because you want to listen to His Word.. You want to come to the meetings. . To have your quiet time – your prayer time with God. They cause problems – right in your family. Your family don’t like it when you put God first.. the Kingdom of God first. You put the meeting first or your time with God first – or whatever it is. That will cause persecution. And that is for righteousness sake. Very often the Devil uses the closest ones to us.

God Will Do It Through Us

Be Sure Your Persecution Is For Righteousness Sake

What do we do? Do we compromise? Can we do it in our own strength? No, we ask God to help us to be faithful.. to put the Kingdom first. We do that because we know we’re weak in this. We know we’ll give in to them otherwise. We’ll give in to this world – the things of The Spirit of This Age. We can’t do it in ourselves. That’s why we’re baptised – filled with the Holy Spirit. God will do it in and through us if it’s what we want.
