This side of heaven, we will face hardship. We wish it wasn’t true. But if Jesus, who was perfect, suffered, His followers certainly will. In fact, Jesus said, “If they persecuted me, they will persecute you.”

Persecution certainly hit the Apostle Paul. Hard. Unfairly. And it hurt. But it didn’t knock him out of the race.

That’s why this week’s message in Acts can be so helpful to all of us. When life doesn’t go as planned. When we suffer unfairly. When the very thing that Jesus said would happen, happens. When life hurts.
