Matthew 5:11-12 – “11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”
What are you living for? If you are after the praise of man, you may well miss out on the greatest thing know unto man. Heaven.
We are told by Jesus Himself, that we will be blessed when we endure persecution because of our relationship with Him. People may not understand. People may well make fun of you. People may even screen you out of their lives. Jesus said this would happen.
The awesome part? Jesus is keeping track and He will one day hand out rewards for those who have faithfully endured the persecution of others. Hang in there, He is keeping track. Remember, God loves you and so do I.
