Read 1 Thessalonians 2:1-3

You know how badly we had been treated at Philippi just before we came to you and how much we suffered there. Yet our God gave us the courage to declare his Good News to you boldly, in spite of great opposition. 1 Thessalonians 2:2 (NLT)

As we follow God and meet with success, opposition will arise. But the Holy Spirit can give us courage and enable us to persist in faithful service. So wherever you are at in your spiritual journey, be that consistent, persistent person who continues to shine forth God’s light and love.
