“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.”1 Peter 1:6
For some it was too much, but for many who were once just nominal Christians, persecution has brought profound blessing. God has a habit of moving us out of our comfort zones and putting us in situations where we must rely on Him. It’s part of His relational nature. As Pete says, “God is not OK with His people ‘just getting by.’” We were made for more than being comfortable. We were made to worship Him, and sometimes God pulls the rug out to get us onto our knees.
1 Peter 1:3-9
Pray for those christians working to support the persecuted church worldwide, that they may be protected, strengthened, and blessed.
