Happy are Those who put Jesus First
Happy are those who are persecuted for FOLLOWING JESUS.
Matthew 5:11 NLT
“God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers.
This happiness comes from my GREAT REWARD.
Matthew 5:12 NLT
Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.
God sees great things in ME.
Matthew 5:13-16 NLT
“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
