Our message is entitled Persecuted Christians and will come from [esvignore]Matthew 5:2-12[/esvignore]. We’ll focus on the last two verses. This is the last of the beatitudes, so Jesus gave us a double saying, and encourages us to press on when we come into conflict with the world. I pray we will be challenged and encouraged by the words of our Lord. The sermon will break down into these parts:
- End Cap of the Beatitudes
- What it isn’t talking about
- For Righteousness Sake
- It’s not for me
- How do we react to persecution?
