Persecution comes to all who stand
For Truth and righteousness…
All who seek to follow Jesus Christ,
And walk in holiness.
Friend, we need not ever think it strange
That vicious darts are hurled…
At those who take a stand for the Lord
In this rebellious world.
Every man and woman, boy and girl,
Who lives a Godly life…
Can expect to face opposition,
Persecution and strife.
Yet, we can be joyful in the midst
Of trouble we go through…
Knowing we suffer for Jesus sake,
As His will we pursue.
Let us stand firm on God’s precious Word,
And never compromise…
As we reach out in love to the lost,
Every need He supplies.
When persecution comes, and it will,
Let us bow down and pray…
Strengthened, we will rise to serve our Lord…
More like Him in that day.
“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ
Jesus shall suffer persecution.”
Jesus said: “The servant is not greater than his lord. If they
they will also persecute you.”
“Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them
that hate you,
and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.”
(II Tim 3:12; Jo 15:20; Matt 5:44)
