Spiritual Sunday

Luke 6:22-23 “Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you, revile you and defame you on account of the son of Man. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven, for that what their ancestors did to the prophets”

With an update of the hatred that Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgender people face daily, it is not surprising that the bible passage here speaks to us clearly, we are blessed when people hate, exclude, revile, and defame us on the account that we are children of the living God.
Our families hate us, our societies revile and our governments are looking for legal methods to exclude us. I say to you brothers and sisters, rejoice and leap for joy, for your reward is the unconditional love of God for each of us.
I pray that we do not lose sight of this miraculous phenomenon. I say a little prayer for you that you will be able to withstand the wiles of the enemy and each day you will become stronger by recognising the love of Jesus for you. Amen
