From a series on the pains of the Christian. One of those pains is persecution.

Text: 2 Tim 3.6-17

  1. Persecution arises because of opposition to the truth, 6-9.
  2. Persecution is part of the “package” of living for Christ and proclaiming his word, 10-11.
  3. The Lord rescues us from it all, 11.
  4. Persecution is the reality of godly living, 12.
  5. The Christian’s reaction: faithfulness to the Scriptures, 14-17.
