“Those who are persecuted for righteousness are blessed, for the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.”
Christian, persecution is as much a part of a walk with Christ as the Lord’s Supper. To fellowship with Him is to recognize that some suffer death for Him. This is real folks. To believe and walk with Him is to suffer the hateful words and stares that accompany a Christ follower fully devoted to His mission.
Jesus says that those who are persecuted are blessed. To run from it is to miss a blessing. To live just enough in this world to slink away from it is to miss that great inheritance, the kingdom of Heaven.
Let us not forsake this blessing for this present world’s comforts. Don’t chase after it for your glory but be ready for it when it comes for His Glory.
Know that you are in Christ and He will take care of you. Abide in Him …
Open His Word and Enjoy.
