Rejoice In Tribulation

“Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” ~ Matthew 5:11-12

As Christians, we are attacked by the world simply because of the Name of Jesus. We often become discouraged, overwhelmed, stressed, depressed, etc. because we only see the pain in this moment. We can’t look forward to eternity and see how short the pain will last on this Earth compared to eternity.

Tribulations will come, it’s unavoidable. Persecution will come, it’s everywhere. But don’t be discouraged, be encouraged because if the world loved you, you would be of the world. Instead the world hates you because you are not a part of the world. You have been chosen by God and separated from the world. So rejoice and be glad when you are despised or persecuted, for your rewards will be great in Heaven.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Rejoice.
