“Blessed are you when men hate you…for the Son of Man’s sake.” Luke 6:22. The Lord forewarned His followers that those who do His work will incur the hatred and persecution of unbelievers.  But He also encouraged them to go forward confidently in spite of the bitter attacks of the enemy, knowing that their “reward is great in heaven” (Luke 6:22-23). If you are being opposed because you are serving the Lord and trying to do what is right, don’t lose faith.  Be encouraged.  Remember the apostle Paul said, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31). Satan’s greatest rival is revival.
