Today’s reading John 9-10
John 10:39 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,
Today, too many try to run from persecution. It seems that I would rather make them know that they do not need to be afraid. We will pay the price to preach no matter what happens.
Do not try to keep quiet so you can stay in a country! Rather preach. Tell people the gospel. That is why you went there.
At the same time you do not have to look to suffer or to be persecuted. Jesus escaped to continue preaching.
So Christians can move or escape to avoid getting persecuted or put out of the ministry.
It would be better to get kicked out of your country for doing your job and preaching Jesus than to be safe and secure but never preaching.
Preach and avoid getting caught but do not fall into the trap of seeking security over living out your purpose!
