As American Christians, we are in a battle for righteousness in this nation. For the honor and glory of God, and for the good of all people, we must be engaged in pursuing righteousness. And if we are, we can be sure of this: there will be an initial cost, but there will also be an eternal reward.
10 “Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.
12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you." (NASB)
