“God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. “God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers. Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.” (Matthew 5:10-12 NLT)

This world is against God and anything that represents Him, including you and me. If you are a follower of Christ you will be persecuted in some way shape or form, it is a part of our Christian walk.

Do not let fear or distress take hold of you, do not dread it. No it will not be comfortable; But God will be with you through it all. “Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.  For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.  So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.” (James 1:2-4 NLT)

Want some more motivation? Goggle Christians persecuted by ISIS (warning graphic material), or visit voice of the martyrs.com. For us in established countries, like Canada, United Sates, United Kingdom etc, we don’t see persecution to the degree that our fellow Christians in third world countries do. Our fellow brothers and sister are taking a stand for Christ and many of them are being killed, tortured and imprisoned while taking that stand, pray of them

Christ took a stand for you! So take a stand For Him. This Physical earth is not our home so don’t get to comfortable. God has so many greater things for those that love and serve Him. “God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. “God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers.    Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.” (Matthew 5:10-12 NLT)

 

Much Love & God Bless
