The sermon on the mount gives us the consequence of reflecting God’s nature.┬áBlessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.┬áBlessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Don’t be afraid of rejection because you are reflecting God’s nature and invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
