BLESS THIS HOME PT.4 • We are not just a CHRISTIAN family • We are a Christ-CENTERED home TODAY’S KEY THOUGHT: • If you are a Christ-centered family, you will be PERSECUTED. KEY PASSAGE: Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:10) PREPARING YOUR FAMILY FOR PERSECUTION 1. EXPECT it. In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted… (2 Timothy 3:12) If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first…you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. (John 15:18-20) 2. ENDURE it. …When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it. (1 Corinthians 4:12) • When family identity is STRONG, peer pressure is weak. • When family identity is WEAK, peer pressure is strong. 3. EMBRACE it. 16 However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. (1 Peter 4:16) WHAT STEPS MIGHT YOU NEED TO TAKE TO BETTER PREPARE YOUR FAMILY FOR PERSECUTION?
