The Persecuted Church / Dealing with Opposition  Acts 5:40-42, Mark 1:12-13 

Persecution runs like a scarlet thread through all the history of the Church. From their earliest days, followers of Jesus have faced varying degrees of oppression, opposition, and violence at different periods.

Whatever the cause or level of persecution, it will occur as followers of Jesus seek to share His message to the ends of the earth. And often, we will discover that persecution can lead to growth in the life of the Church.  Lawrie.
