Coworkers, friends, neighbors, or family members might ridicule us when we talk about Christ. And whenever that happens, our first instinct is often to hide our faith.
But the book of Acts tells us that the apostles and the early church didn’t mind suffering for Christ. In fact, they actually rejoiced that they were worthy of receiving affliction for His sake!
John MacArthur explains how they could have had that attitude—examining instances of persecution from the record of the early church in Acts, he gives practical insights into How to Handle Persecution and reveals persecution’s surprising benefits. Learn how to suffer well for Christ by following the example of believers who’ve gone before, and how your response to persecution can be one that honors God.
