RESPONDING TO OPPOSITION


Several months ago, a pastor sent some of his associate pastors into a village. They evangelized by knocking on doors and as God brought in healing and deliverance into these families, they would come to Christ.


They once knocked on the door of a policeman, a very active member of one of the political parties that is very much against Christianity. He arrested them on the spot. They were arrested for this horrible crime of praying for people, taken to the prison.


This pastor heard about this and he went to the jail to convince that they were not doing anything wrong. But before he got there, there were about 50 people waiting. They beat him up and knocked him unconscious. Some friends of his saw him there and took him to the hospital. He later went back to the prison, and convinced the people to let these people out and he continues in his ministry. He hasn’t slowed down at all. They continued doing the ministry in the village. They want the people of India to know the love of Jesus Christ.


How do you respond to opposition? Do you respond to it by kind of hiding your faith? As soon as you hide your faith, you lose your faith, because it loses its reality even for you.
