Persecution Blessings

Persecution_0.jpg 2Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:10
The whole world is under the control of the evil one. When one follows Jesus he is will be spotted and will stand out from the rest. We sacrifice many things for the sake of following Jesus.
Many people are deceived that they not to live for God is the right way to live and they are deceived and their minds are darkened to believe that we are on the wrong track. When the Christian understands the will of God for his life a, thinks different, comes out from among them and is completely different by his actions.
His uniqueness will not make the others comfortable. They try hard to make him the same like them again or they make his life hard to follow Jesus. His uniqueness will make them uncomfortable and they oppose him for whatever reasons they can get.
A person in dirty clothing isn’t comfortable in the midst of the people in clean cloth. The people who practice sin will never be comfortable in the presence of the person who is disciplined to follow Jesus. The people who are reckless will never stand in the presence of the person who fears God. He frightens them all.
He may not use any word but his pure life will condemn them that they are not going to heaven. His uniqueness will destruct their worldly lives. His holy living of light will expose their darkness.
We automatically reject the devil when we chose to follow Jesus and make him our savor and Lord. So the Devil will attack us using any available weapon at his disposal. He will use others ignorance to persecute us. He will do whatever to stop us from living for God and for Him only. If He doesn’t succeed, he wants to make our Christian life miserable.
In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 2 Timothy 3:12
We lose our status in society, we lose our friendship, we lose our comfort, and we lose our freedom. We lose our good names. The followers of Jesus sacrifice their benefits for the sake of the Gospel.
We may even be demoted or sacked from our work. We can be imprisoned. We can be displaced. We can be beaten or we can even be killed.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:10
Blessed, praiseworthy, happy and favored are those who are persecuted because of righteousness.
