Suffering for the Cause of Christ

Sep 6, 2020    Pastor Marco David

Contrary to the false prosperity gospel, God's word calls Christians to submission. These topics are certainly not popular in a day and age of lawlessness, injustice, and were seeking "personal fulfillment" reigns—however, they are vital themes to our witness for Christ.

Our witness for Christ in this world will often have more to do with the suffering we endure for Christ than the suffering we escape through Christ. And this willingness to endure suffering comes from a heavenly-mindedness that brings about much earthly good.

In this message from 1 Peter 2:18-25, we consider the heavenly mindset of believers that enables them to do a lot of earthly good for Jesus' sake even if they have to suffer to do so.
