📜📜```TEXT:JEREMIAH 20:1-6```📜📜


🔑📖```KEY VERSE:``` _*"Then Pashur smote Jeremiah the prophet

and put him in the stocks that were in the high gate of Benjamin, which was by the house of the LORD" (JEREMIAH 20:2).*_


     *In 1956, five evangelical Christian missionaries from USA travelled to Ecuador, South America, to preach the gospel to unreached communities; they were all killed. Many committed servants of God have paid the supreme price in the course of divine service. Persecution of the righteous has always been the hallmark of faithful service to the Lord.*


     *Jeremiah, in obedience to God's command, prophesied against some of the elders of the people and the priests whose actions were corrupt.

This angered Pashur who was the chief governor in the house of the Lord. He arrested and chastised Jeremiah, putting him in stock. Though maltreated, JeremiahJeremiah refused to be demoralised. He rather grew bolder in declaring the whole counsel of God.*


     *Jeremiah is just one of the numerous Christian role models who triumphed despite severe oppositions.

He remained an inspiring example for those who will be fearless and faithful followers of Christ and preachers of the undiluted word of God. Persecution will remain a common experience of true Christians because "as...he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now" (Galatians 4:29).*


     *Those who are called of God for Kingdom service must understand that the converse side of total commitment to the course of the gospel is unbridled persecution.

Courage to persevere comes from looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. We must be ready to follow the Lord and endure to the end to win the crown.*
