Hold On In Time Of Persecution

Key Verse

“But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up” (Daniel 3:18).

Text — Daniel 3:13-18


If any youth faithfully follows Christ, he must share in His sufferings. A group of persecuted Christians were asked thus: “Have you ever wanted to give up your faith in Christ?” One of them responded: “Through all the pains I have gone through, I could not turn away from Christ and I have not turned away from him. I will never turn my back on him. He will always be my Saviour. Christ is my hope for eternal life.” In our text, the three Hebrew youths held on in the face of fierce persecution. This is challenging. Everyone who is living godly will face persecution. Persecution is not meant to destroy us but to make us stronger in the Lord.

As Christian youths, more than the persecution itself is our attitude in time of persecution. God’s expectation for us during persecution is to keep the faith and not to deny Christ. In order to remain steadfast in persecution you must have the word of God dwelling in you and constantly pray. If we endure persecution to the end, we shall receive eternal reward.


Keep the faith


Will you deny or stand for Christ?

Prayer for today

Lord, may I not deny you in persecution.
