Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
In the previous blessing, the individual would be blessed if they are persecuted for righteousness’ sake. In this blessing, an individual will be blessed if they suffer persecution for their faith in Christ. Christ knew that His disciples would be mistreated and persecuted because of their association with Him. We are to remember that the suffering we experience now, will be pale in comparison, to the glory we will experience in the future.
