Jesus told them, “Go back to John and tell him what you have heard and seen— the blind see, the lame walk, those with leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life, and the Good News is being preached to the poor.”  And he added, “God blesses those who do not fall away because of me.”(Matthew 11:2-6 NLT) Let us focus on the last sentence in today’s verse. “God blesses those who do not fall away because of me.” Jesus knows that we will have persecution because we believe in Him. We will be made fun of, bullied, called names, etc. Jesus is saying God will bless those that do not turn away from Him. No matter what comes our way, stand firm proclaiming the gospel of Christ; do not be ashamed for you will be blessed when you stand firm in Christ’s name. Be happy when others persecute you because you are being blessed by God; so, let them talk. God Loves Ya 😉
