Gospel Beatdowns

Matthew 5:10 NKJV

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

I've seen many people use this to justify how others respond to them when they use the "gospel" as a justification for their bad behavior. Clubbing others over the head with the "truth" is not righteousness. LOVING others in truth is righteousness. How do we know the difference? We know we are acting in righteousness when there isn't an ounce of self in our actions.

Sometimes love is rewarded in this life with trials and opposition. That's OK because we have a higher calling, a higher standard and are filled with the Most High God who has the highest love of all.

Let's love as He loves, and from that love share His truth with the world knowing that His kingdom will come and His will will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
