Matthew 13:21 “…when trouble or persecution comes because of the Word, he quickly falls away.”

A Holy Spirit empowered ministry continues despite persecution.  Now for most of us, the persecution we endure isn’t fear for our lives, but rather petty or cruel remarks made by anonymous people on social media that are just plain God haters.  But when you’re bullied or intimidated for your faith it can still be frightening.  The flesh wants to retreat, but the Holy Spirit within spurs us on, giving us the boldness to respond with grace and truth.  Jesus tells us in Matthew 11:6, “Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of Me.”  The Lord is telling us…”Don’t give up!  And don’t allow others to dictate your destiny in Me.”
