A Wash of Delight

No comments

I have a verse of Scripture before me this morning. 

It’s 2 Timothy 3:12

Are you familiar with it?
It’s not one of those feel-good verses. It does not give us a wash of delight and we are not just thrilled to share it but today we are sharing. 

The King James Version. The one used for centuries says: 2 Timothy 3:12  12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. source

Actually, I have two. 

One.
ALL godly living Christians encounter persecution – actually the word is SUFFER.

It’s not fun.
It hurts.
It is suffering! Some physical. Some otherwise. But it is suffering.

Next Point.
Are we suffering? 
And if we are not suffering either physically or otherwise – what does that mean? 
If I am to believe the verse, and I do, it can only mean we are not living godly lives.

According to Media sources, (certain) Christians are dangerous. 

2 Timothy 3:12 12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. source

Thanks for visiting . . .
