You know that exciting feeling of preparing and getting dressed up for church every weekend?
The excitement of getting ready to meet with your brothers and sisters to celebrate and worship Jesus.
Now imagine you arrive at church and have protesters riot right on your church’s doorstop, blocking the way, scaring our small children while they’re shouting and screaming: “You believe in the wrong God! Get out of this city!”
Unfortunately, we don’t have to imagine that, because it is our reality every single weekend.
We take comfort and joy in Yeshua’s words in Matthew 5:10-11
“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven.”
Pray for our peace as we pray and bless our persecutors.
