Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
– Matthew 5:10-12

Oh that God would work in my heart like he has in my Egyptian brother’s in light of their great loss for Jesus’ sake. This is a life centered upon the gospel.
