A Daily Word - July 13, 2011

 

July 13

"Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.  Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” - Matthew 5:11-12

Today, Christians may not be hurled into the coliseums to face hungry lions, but are cast into the chronicles of daily media. The spin machines of ancient Rome depicted Christians as unpatriotic cannibals who drank blood at “love feasts.” Today’s spinners write, as did one in The Washington Post, that Christians are “uneducated and easily led.” Such is no surprise to the followers of the Man Who was regarded by the establishment elite 20 centuries ago as rabble-rouser from the boondocks. When people spread rumors and lies about you it’s time to rejoice—they have linked you with your Master.
