“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
Matthew 5:10-12 RSV
I was thinking about how tired I was over the weekend helping out at church, granted I haven’t been well but how blessed that I live in a country where we have the freedom to praise and worship our Lord. Others are not so fortunate , they suffer and die for their faith. Today I’m thinking and praying for the persecuted Church world wide.
Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. Hebrews 13:3
