Coworkers, friends, neighbors, or family members might ridicule us when we talk about Christ. And when that happens, our first instinct may be to hide our faith. But persecution is an intrinsic part of Christianity. The early church actually rejoiced that they were worthy to receive affliction for Jesus’ sake!
In this study guide, John MacArthur explains their surprising attitude with practical insights from the book of Acts. He reveals how persecution is actually a blessing to all believers and includes questions for deeper study, discussion, and application—making this an ideal resource for either your personal or group study. It’s also the perfect companion to the How to Handle Persecution audio series, which you can listen to free of charge at gty.org or via the Grace to You app.
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.
