“For you yourselves know, brothers, that our visit with you was not without result. On the contrary, after we had previously suffered, and we were treated outrageously in Philippi, as you know, we were emboldened by our God to speak the gospel of God to you in spite of great opposition” – As believers, sharing our faith is not without its challenges – but we are strengthened by God to show His love even in the face of adversity, so we must press on, come what may!
