We are back with our articles directed to the assistants after having lived a unique experience in our lives.
We meditated on the Word of God through the articles “Being one with Him”.
We prepared ourselves to see the extraordinary, and the highlight of it all was the inauguration of the Temple of Solomon. It was a day that made history, especially for those who, in fact, prepared themselves for it. That’s my belief!
We are continuing on the series of the Beatitudes, today we will talk about those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake:
” Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:10)
But what righteousness is the Bible referring to?
It is referring to the truth, integrity, dignity, character; all that is contrary to the unrighteousness of this world. It is for this reason that those who live in righteousness are persecuted by those who do not because they do not accept the truth it is very painful for them.
And Jesus said that the first to rise up against us would be those in our own home. Therefore do not be surprised if those who are closest to you and live in unrighteousness like: lies, vanity, and selfishness rise against you, rather consider yourself blessed!
It is important to observe if you have been an assistant living in righteousness or one that when faced with difficulties, persecution, and especially before your own mistakes, sees themselves as being wronged, and does not accept to be molded. If you are this way it is because there is no righteousness inside of you! Therefore, you do not belong to the Kingdom of Heaven.
Observe the importance of being sincere, even if you have to pay a high price!
I hope to read your comment and thoughts on today’s article.
A big hug!

Thank for this article miss Viviane sometimes we even face persecutions in the church but this should not make us weak but rather strong and continue fighting more.

Thank you very much Mrs V for sharing. This blog is powerful many times we are faced with the persecuted and not by people who are far from us but from people who are close to us it hurts but at the end of the day it molds us to be better servants. God bless.
