Think About It
Read Matthew 5:10-12. How about that for an oxymoron: blessed persecution, blessed insults, and blessed evil? It sounds crazy, and nothing any of us would want to invite. But Jesus said it, so it must be true. Believers pursue God’s way of life even when it runs counter to the things the world considers to be important. Because of this, you will face opposition and persecution, but you will be blessed.
OEvaluate your life. Is it different from the way the rest of the world lives or do you fit in? Explain. (In your Journal)
Do you act differently at Camp than at home?
If people do insult you and make fun of you because you’re a Christian, is it because you represent Him well or because you judge and antagonize? Explain.
In what area of your life is God calling you to live differently for His glory? What steps will you take to do so this week?
