…for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.” 2 Corinthians 4:11
Jesus said in Matthew 5:12, “Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
“Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed My teaching, they will obey yours also.” John 15:20.
1 Peter 2:20-21, “But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.”
2 Corinthians 4:6, “For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
Father! Please bless those Pastors who are in prison and ministers being persecuted. Please give them Your Spirit and speak to them so they don’t feel alone, and speak through them to all around. They are Your children, and You’re so happy with them. Great is their reward. We are all called to witness Jesus, but we don’t. Take care of their families, Dear God.
