Suffering by Kyle Done
1. hallucinations, every night i face dark nights. full of pain of soul. noises and fear. and seeing this dragon
2. people-persecution for being different- one of my good friends often avoids me when i talk about god
3. loneliness, depression from being the only person that seems to want to follow god
4. being misunderstood
5. being a enemy of the world
6. things always go wrong
7 love hurts, loving whores, people who are filled wit anger. and the homeless. even thou i often try to avoid these people sometimes i reach out and they attack like a lion biting his master
8. even the church doesn’t accept me because the either don’t accept the needy or they aren’t right in heart
9. I feel abandoned by god. I feel like Jesus on the cross. nothing but darkness. i am forced to rely on his promises instead of his joy
10. I feel like im 40 years old. got to fight to get out of bed
Kyle Done~ God Bless all! :)
I would like to welcome everyone here today, i am going to talk about persecution, and how u can’t avoid it, if u live for Christ.
if u will turn your bibles too john 15:18-20, and repeat after me
“If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.
if u are living for the world and living for yourself, others will welcome u, see u as your best friend. but if u start living for Christ. others will make fun of u cuz your different and even if others don’t. Satan sees your commitment. and will use those who belong to him to do what ever it takes to tear u down and wait even if it means using family.
bible warns us to imitate Christ (Philippians 2:5 walk as he walked)
and john 15 warns us if we imitate Christ we will be persecute. not because they hate us but because they hate Christ and don’t understand him.
that leaves us with a dilemma. we want to be like our lord and savior but we don’t want to suffer, what to do? <:-)
lets see what the bible says, turn your bible to
Romans 8:17-18 Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also
share in his glory
For i consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
interesting, now suffering takes a different turn. what r u going thru? headaches, a friend abandoned u, debt, maybe lost a job?
Paul states in Romans. that if we suffer with Christ we will be with Christ in heaven and it will be like nothing we experienced on earth.
but that leaves a downside :(
if we choose to go the easy way. we might still make it to heaven but we will lose our rewards and lose our chance to reign with god.
next time u face a difficulty, a stress, a burden. or a headache, look to god for relief and he will make it worth your while!
