"Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 5:10

To understand the “bliss” of persecution, it’s important to note the difference between punishment and persecution. Punishment is given by good people for evil deeds. Persecution is meted out by evil people against the good. Therefore, when you are harassed and maltreated because of your commitment to Christ, you can be happy that you are honored to be identified with Him. Paul wrote that “all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” (2 Timothy 3:12). Self-righteousness might earn you punishment, but identification with Christ’s righteousness will get you persecuted. And that’s a badge of honor.

Experience suffering with the peace of God’s presence

Suffering is inevitable – but it doesn’t have to defeat you. Scripture makes it clear that God can use suffering to invite you deeper into His love so you can experience His presence in ways you’d never imagined. That’s what the Old Testament story of Job is all about, and we want to encourage you with that biblical truth by sending you Dr. Young’s 5-message series Overcoming Tough Times.

About The Winning Walk

The Winning Walk with Dr. Ed Young is the international on-air and online teaching ministry of Dr. Ed Young, Senior Pastor of Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas. The Winning Walk proclaims the proven truth of God’s Word to give men and women the world over a winning way to live life.

About Dr. Ed Young

Dr. H. Edwin Young was born in Laurel, Mississippi. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior at the age of 12 through the leading of his pastor's wife, Mrs. Gates.

Following graduation from high school in Laurel, Dr. Young entered the University of Alabama as an engineering major. Mid-way through his freshman year, challenged by an atheist in his dorm who questioned his belief in God, he began to seek God's purpose for his life. Six months later, he surrendered to the call to preach the Gospel, and enrolled at Mississippi College to continue his education.

On June 28, 1959, he married Jo Beth Landrum. Dr. Young's preparation for the ministry continued at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. His first pastorate was in North Carolina, and he pastored in North and South Carolina until 1978 when he moved to Houston, Texas. He became the pastor at Second Baptist Church where he continues to pastor today. The congregation has grown from 2,000 members in 1978 to over 6 campuses and we have reached over 70 thousand members.

Dr. Young was elected president of the Southern Baptist Convention in June of 1992 and again in June, 1993. He is the author of many books including, Total Heart Health, The 10 Commandments of Parenting, and The 10 Commandments of Marriage. Dr. Young's broadcast ministry, The Winning Walk, can be seen and heard across North America and throughout the world.
