By Don Ruhl

Jesus warned His apostles that persecution would come, but then He added,

“But it will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist” (Luke 21.13–15). 

We see nothing good in persecution, and that we should avoid it at all costs, but the Lord sees things differently. Think like the Lord.
