Peace In Persecution


Sunday (7/16), gather with your church family as we turn our attention to Matthew 10:24-33 in which Jesus, who had just commissioned His twelve disciples, prepares them for the opposition, obstacles, and persecution they would face as He sent them out to be His ambassadors in a hostile world.

He had chosen, called, and charged His disciples with the mission of taking the good news of the kingdom to all that lived in Israel. And even though the task would not be easy, they could go with the knowledge that they were not alone.

Jesus had promised that the Holy Spirit would be with them every step of the way. The Spirit knew the future and would teach them what they needed to do and say and assure them that they never had to fear being alone, abandoned, or forgotten. Nor would they have to wrestle with the idea that something they may have done wrong brought about their persecution. Rather, Jesus confirmed that He would be the reason for the world’s hatred. And in the end, each of them would be richly rewarded for their faithfulness to Him and the mission to which they had been called.

I look forward to our time together. Please pray for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the entire Calvary Chapel family.
There are several opportunities for worship. On-campus (10:00 am), drive-in church (92.1fm), and online (Facebook, YouTube: Calvary Inverness); (website:
