Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Greetings Bible Enthusiast!
Today's topic reinforces Matthew 5:10, "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven." It no longer seems to be politically correct to be an on-fire Christian. Do you stand up for Jesus? Do you boldly declare that He is the Son of God, the Way, the Truth and the Life?--the only Way to the Father? If you do, then you know that others will sneer, call you narrow-minded and much worse. Just remember the above scriptures at those times and be comforted.
God Bless You!

TODAY'S NOT SO TRIVIAL TRIVIA QUESTION:
Q. When the divided tongues appeared on each of the diciples, what filled them?
TODAY'S BIT OF WISDOM/REFLECTION:
Truth will find a way...
The cross upon which Jesus died
Is a shelter in which we can hide;
And its grace so free
is sufficient for me,
And deep is its fountain,
as wide as the sea.
There's room at the cross for you,
Though millions have come,
There's still room for one,
Yes, there's room at the cross for you.
