Hope for today: Blessed and rejoice

HopeBlessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.

Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Matthew 5:10-12

To Know Jesus as Lord and Savior

  1. Whenever I read the above Scripture passages, I stop to think if there is indeed enough evidence to convict me of being a Christian. I certainly hope so! Pile on the insults if they must, I know to Whom I belong.
