You know, it does not seem long ago that being a Christian in America was not a bad thing. And then, the wind changed as evil swept through our country. But what are we being persecuted for anyway?
Our CEO perspective on church attendance? (Christmas and Easter Only)
Our treatment of others as Jesus treats us?
Our non-judgmental attitudes because to judge others means we can be judged by God in the same perspective.
Now, if we were persecuted because of our steadfast love of Jesus Christ and our relentless efforts to seek and know Him, while treating others with the same love He showers us. Then maybe, we would experience overwhelming joy when we read the last paragraph in Matthew, Chapter Five.
The words of our Lord Jesus Christ…
“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
Blessed, oh how blessed we can truly be, if we are true to Jesus!
So how can you look around and blame the fact that Christ has been taken out of Christmas and the family homes in America; for the destruction and chaos that has replaced Him? When we allowed it to happen!
The hum of the world was too alluring to our senses, our pride, and the way of life we thought we should lead.
If you want to change things, you had better clean your ears out. And change your daily ways. Only then will we be able to put into motion a better tomorrow for our children.
Try attending church on a regular basis and join in the activities. Treat others the way Jesus treats you with love and forgiveness. And don’t judge a person or situation when you have not walked it too.
Then, when we are persecuted for being a Christian it will be a joy and honor!
God Bless You!
God Bless America!
