Jesus Said "Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for sopersecuted they the prophets which were before you". Matthew 5:12
This is what is on my heart today:
We are the body of Christ, all of us that call ourselves born again. Yet, we still want to bash each other and tear each other down at the very cost of causing irreparable damage. I've been called a false prophet, a Jezebel (just recently), loud, rude, unruly, unsubmissive to authority and out of order. Yet with the pain this has caused me, the greater pain is for those that say this, and their heart because God desires to do something bigger and greater in their lives.
Jesus also said that "A Prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house". Mark 6:4 This is certainly baring true in my own life at the moment. And in the verse above he says to rejoice and be exceedingly glad. for great, yes GREAT shall be my reward in heaven. Hallelujah! Jesus would only say that if the person was doing what he told them too, which is why they are being persecuted.
So I have to declare: Today; I march on. Today; I say Yes again Lord to your will and your way, not mine. You asked me Lord if I would be willing to drink from the same cup, and I said Yes! So today I make the decision to say yes again. As I march onward, and upward following you, I look around me at the carnage that has fallen, those who are unwilling to take up their cross and follow you. Those that are unwilling to submit themselves to the same scrutiny that they are holding me to. I just say, Lord reach in and pull the blinders off. Let them see Lord, that it is not I that they persecute but you. It is not I that they are saying no to, but you. Lord let them see that their is so much more for them if they will also say yes! I love them! I love them all with all of my heart; truly! My heart is breaking Father for them, its breaks for them!
Alas, you are calling me. Come! Come higher. And I cry out Lord that I can't leave them behind, but you beacon me to come. So I turn and once again focus on the cross before me. The way before me is so steep, I must continue to watch you Lord! I must continue to follow closely so I don't lose sight of you. I walk with you and cleave to you as you lead me on.
