What is persecution?
And how is a person persecuted for your sake?
If I am the person,
how will you bless me?*
I shall want nothing,
Your presence comforts me.
The Word restores my soul.
So all the days of my life,
may you dwell in me forever.
* Matthew 5 King James Version (KJV)
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
