Persecuted

Persecuted

Isn't the change in us amazing?
we can turn the other cheek,
forgive those who abuse us
and remain loving and meek?

Self-denial means standing up
for what we believe is right,
even when verbally assaulted
by those not living in God's light!

They are waging war against
Christ Jesus our Lord,
who taught us to be humble
and not live by the sword.

Arrows will be flung
and we are the target,
but Jesus suffered first
lest we should forget!

Rejoice when persecuted,
be glad to bear His name,
for it was at the cross
that Jesus bore our shame!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
