The Gospel of Matthew, Day 24

Meditation and Memory Verse:
In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
2 Timothy 3:12 NIV
Matthew 10:16-23 NIV
16 “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. 17 Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues. 18 On my account you will be brought before governors and kingsas witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. 19 But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, 20 for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
21 “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. 22 You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 23 When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Truly I tell you, you will not finish going through the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

Discussion: Jesus prepares the disciples: they will be persecuted – even by family. Read our Meditation and Memory verse. What does persecution look like to you and how do you prepare for it?
