People's Bible Notes for Matthew 5:11

Mt 5:11 Blessed are ye, when [men] shall revile you. This is a personal application of what has just preceded. Some of those who listened were reviled by the Jews, and persecuted unto death. For my sake. In Mt 5:10 it is said "for righteousness' sake". The two expressions mean the same.

we the people of GOD live for HIS Approval not for man's, humans will say all kinds of evil things against you. So long as your way pleases GOD

We aren 't happy in persecution itself but we are happy when we are being persecuted for the sake of Jesus. The personal satisfaction of knowing we are doing what will make him happy results in us being happy and having his blessing.
