Matthew 5:11-12 “11 “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
When we suffer persecution we are in good company.  We join the company of the prophets, who suffered and some died to keep the faith.  In Hebrews Chapter 11 the heroes of faith overcame great odds but some gave their lives to stay true to God.
Let us pray today that as America becomes more and more resistant to Christianity that we will remember the great company we keep when we remain faithful.  People like Daniel, Jeremiah, Abraham and Nehemiah endured and so can we as our faith remains focused on Jesus the author and perfector of our faith and those who have gone before us and remained faithful in tribulation and some even death seeing Him who is invisible as being “faithful and true”  Revelation 19:11.
