Beatitudes: Blessed are the Persecuted
Show Notes

Nov. 5th – Today is International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, which is a fitting day to learn more about the final beatitude that Jesus shares in Matthew 5:10, “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” As followers of Jesus, our lives will look different, and that difference will bring about different types of persecution. In the face of persecution, don’t give up. Rather, press on and pray for strength to keep running after Jesus.
