Everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution
And even though evil people and impostors will flourish, deceiving others and being deceived themselves, we must remain faithful to the things we have been taught in the holy Scriptures. The Word of God has given us the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus. Yes, all Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right – it’s God's way of preparing us and fully equipping us for every good thing He wants us to do. I recently read some advice from an anointed servant of God. He said, “First read the Bible and then obey it. Then read it again!” GOOD ADVICE! God and Christ Jesus will someday judge the living and the dead when He appears to set up His Kingdom, so until then we are to preach the word of God. We are to be persistent, whether the time is favorable or not. We are to patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage others with good teaching. We should keep a clear mind in every situation and not be afraid of suffering for the Lord as we work at bringing others to Christ. I pray that we each complete the ministry God has given us. AMEN!
