2 Timothy 3:12 (AMP) ” Indeed, all who delight in pursuing righteousness and are determined to live godly

Persecution comes when we begin to live a consecrated life for Christ. When we step out from lawlessness and begin to live by the standards our Father requires, we will meet opposition from the world. Now, persecution doesn’t automatically scream being hanged and imprisoned (though these are real and extreme cases), persecution can also be on a smaller scale Continue reading “Persecution: a profane response to holiness”

Romans 12:2 (AMP)
Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
The process of transformation begins when you make a decision in your heart to answer the calling and consecrate yourself to God. When you commit to following The Truth regardless of the outward circumstances and resistances you may face.
“The reward will be greater than the sacrifice!”
Persevere, key into your inner strength and continue to renew your mind with the beautiful words of our wonderful creator. He is with you every step of the way.
