Persecuted But Still Blessed

Matthew 5:10
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

The sad thing is that all over the world, Christians are persecuted for just proclaiming Jesus. They are arrested, thrown in jail, and even murdered for following his teachings. If you are blessed enough to live where you can serve God, then you should be thankful. Many people across the globe face persecution that we can not imagine, but yet they still hold to their faith. We could learn something from them. We should learn to have the faith that they have. They have faith that even if they are facing death, they will still hold to Jesus. They know that when they die here, they will open their eyes in the presence of God. We need to pray for these people that God will keep his hand on them. However, we need to pray for those who live in a place where they don’t face persecution and find it an inconvenience if the temperate isn’t just right in the church. They forget people around the world would love to be able to worship God in the open.
