Have you ever been persecuted for Righteousness? Jesus Christ tells us in the Sermon on the Mount that we will be persecuted for the godliness others see in us. Doesn’t that sound messed up? Do the right things, live for God and get persecuted. Do wrong and hear the world clap. Have you experienced this? That’s how the world works. To be a Christ follower we must allow Him to transform us, cleanse us from our sins and renew our minds in order that we may live out the truth and stand for righteousness, even when we are persecuted. Everyone stands for something, what will you stand for? In an age where wrong pretends to be right, plant yourself on the side of timeless truth!
“But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day.” Prov 4:18
How are you standing for righteousness?
