Text: 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. (Matthew 5:11-12)

Tweet: Blessed (happy) are those who are persecuted for Christ’s sake, for it not only proves that they are Christ’s servants on earth, but also that they have a great reward awaiting them in Heaven.
