Matthew 5:10
 
Matthew 5:10 King James Version (KJV)

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.


In my morning Devotional, My mind drifted back to times where I was persecuted for trying to show the Godless heathens of Duluth the way to True Salvation™.
It reminded me that even though the world might hate me for doing Jesus' work, it's nothing compared to what is in store for me in the future!

Re: Matthew 5:10
 
I hope you continue to do Jesus' work, and not let Satan use the unbelievers in this world to dissuade you and drag you down. Those of us that are Christians that put our beliefs into practice and are vocal about God and His good works, will draw persecution like moths to a flame. But ask yourself the following; "Who are you more afraid of falling out of favor with? Your friends? Coworkers? Or God?" Our enemies are strong, numerous, and bloodthirsty, but they don't stand a chance against the 1 and only God. He's in charge, not them. Even though it seems at times like Satan is running the show, just remember that God is laughing at Satan's feeble attempts to destroy His creations. Think of God as the roadrunner, and Satan as Wylie Coyote...Satan's plans keep blowing up in his face, while God never loses stride. God bless you for all that you do.
