Persecuted

 
 

Persecuted
By Christine Hare Tate
~

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

Following Jesus means standing up
for what we believe is right,
even when verbally assaulted
by those not living in God’s light!

They’re 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!
