Rejoicing in Persecution
In today's passage, the apostles are miraculously set free from prison, and the return immediately to the temple and continue teaching the gospel message for which they were arrested previously. Once again, they are arrested, and this time they are flogged. The leave, rejoicing to be counted worthy to suffer for the sake of Jesus Christ. In this sermon, Brother Tracey looks at this account, and the example set before us that we are to rejoice in suffering for Jesus Christ, and boldly proclaim the gospel message in every circumstance.
