TODAY'S COMMAND TO OBEY:
Today, we're looking at the command of Jesus in Matthew 5:11-12, where Jesus tells us: “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 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." (NIV)
So, as Christians, how can we really obey this command? Watch the video above to hear some teaching on that, and spend some guided time in prayer, asking God for his grace and help to obey Jesus!
Take 60 seconds & text your mentor – let them know if you’re moving forward on your “next action,” or ask for prayer! If it’s not going well, don’t pretend! The Bible says “confess to one another...that you may be healed.” (James 5:16) Believe it – honesty has POWER. ~ Darrell
