In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.

– 2 Timothy 3:12-13 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

There are some teachers today that tell us that we will not experience hardship and pain if we follow Jesus. The Bible tells us to not be deceived by them. Persecution is bound to come as we live according to the teachings of Jesus Christ. Don’t sacrifice your conscience for the allure of comfort; realize that people will oppose you and even try to damage your job or reputation. This happened to Jesus and the disciples, so don’t be surprised when it happens to you.
