You are in Good Company!

good company

Good morning! It is a beautiful day to praise the Lord.

Many times we seek instant gratification. We want results now! We are a microwave society and want all of our benefits right here and now. However, again, God does things differently than we do and He does it in His own time. Most of our reward will be given to us later.

“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”   Matt 5:10-12 

No one wants persecution nor do we want people to dislike us or say things against us, whether they are true or not. Yet Jesus said when we are persecuted for Him or spoken against because of Him, we are blessed. In fact He goes so far to say, hang up the sad face and rejoice! We are in good company because the prophets of old experienced the same, as did the Apostles and the early Church. We haven’t had to suffer much, this way, here in the U.S., but that day could very well be coming, and coming sooner than we expect. Just remember, you are in good company!

Just a thought! God Bless…
