Dear members and friends of St. Peter's Anglican Church,
The peace of the Lord be always with you.
PERSECUTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS' SAKE.
What is the reward of those who are persecuted for righteousness sake such as the prophets, Apostles and the martyrs who died for the word of God?
Jesus says: in Mathew 5:10: "Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
The reward of suffering for the truth of the word of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord.
We read in 1 John 5:11: "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son."
May God bless us and give us the grace to be in His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
