1. Persecution brings Growth
The Holy Spirit is the counciler comforter
Why because we need Him as trouble may be coming.
If you loose your saltiness how will people see Godliness
Being the church is about the difference my faith makes outside the church service.
2. Be transformed by the renewing of your mind
We are to be transformed firstly in our minds then our feelings actions emotions and attitudes follow that
The word 'transformed' is from the Greek word Metamorphosis/permanently changed,
'renewing' is not a permanent thing.
When moving from persecution to blessing the transformation of our mind is key, not the transformation of our circumstances!
3. Replace your self focused thinking with a God focused mindset
