Wednesday Night Discussion Questions
Series: The Beatitudes
Topic: Part 2— Persecution
Speaker: Nathan Sell, Middle School Pastor
Date: October 26, 2022
Persecution is totally something that we all look forward to, right? All joking aside, we typically live our lives in a way where we don’t stand out— we blend-in so that we can fit-in. But how does that work when we live in a culture that goes against Christ? How can we fit-in and also live a life for Christ? In this world, actually living for Christ means that we will likely face some sort of persecution. We may not be thrown in jail, but we may be insulted or lose friends over our decisions and values. When we look at Scripture, we see that persecution does 3 things— exposes our loyalty, creates an opportunity, and strengthens our faith. What if we decided to live unashamed of Jesus, and sought to share him constantly through our thoughts, words and actions?
