"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." - Matthew 5 V10

"But Abraham said, 'Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented." - Luke 16 V25

Today we see an increasing persecution of Christians around the world. Even the nations that are considered liberal, we see an increasing intolerance for the teaching of Christ and Christ Himself. But we do see that there are few people of God who are faithful in their service. There are missionaries who are preaching the gospel faithfully in some of the most difficult and dangerous places in our world and some are facing death everyday. Our Lord assured that blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake. Those who love the Lord and serve Him will surely receive their reward in heaven. Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
