Matthew 11:6

"Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me." NIV

"Blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me." KJV

If we do the words Jesus did when He was on earth, we will be ridiculed, mocked, and persecuted just as He was. We are blessed if we continue to do His work and do not fall away because of the negative reaction of others or the persecution we endure. Expect to offend others, but never be offended by the consequences of serving Christ.

Heavenly Father, how thankful we are that Your Son walked this earth showing us how to live righteously. We humbly as for Your strength, grace, and mercy as we receive the same persecution that our Lord did. May we never be offended to suffer for Him. In His name we pray, Amen.

Enduring negative consequences is such a small think in light of what Jesus did for us. Such a good post.
