The Living Word – Persecution

The Living Word – Persecution

If you knew that you only had a short time to live, how would you live out your final hours and days? In John 14-16, Jesus gives His disciples their final instructions before the crucifixion. His living words gave them hope and encouragement in the midst of their doubt and anxiety.

Today we continue our new series going verse by verse through these three important chapters, as Eugene shares a message from John 15:18-25 about the hardships that we will encounter as believers.
