TRANSCRIPT:

Exploring God’s Word: Luke’s Gospel

Let’s turn to God’s Word. We turn now to Luke’s Gospel. We continue our study in the Gospel of Luke in Chapter 6. In Chapter 6, we have the Sermon on the Mount in a condensed form, in verses 20 to 49. I’ll just pick out a few verses.

It speaks here about those who hunger for righteousness in verse 21. And those of us who are serving the Lord in difficult situations, or who will be serving the Lord in the future in difficult situations where you’re persecuted, misunderstood, criticized, harassed, please remember these words.

Those who live in comfortable circumstances may not need this, but verse 22, “Blessed are you when men hate you.” Do you believe that? That you’re blessed when men hate you? “Blessed are you when men ostracize you.” Ostracize you means they won’t have anything to do with you. It may be your relatives, it may be other Christians, it may be heathen people, it may be your neighbors, it may be anybody. They put you away because you’re a Christian, because you’re a disciple of Jesus and you stand for the whole counsel of God.

Embracing Persecution: The Christian’s Response

“Blessed are you when they cast insults at you.” How many of you believe that you’re a blessed man, a blessed woman, when people not just insult you but throw multitudes of insults at you? You’re blessed when they spurn your name as evil. That means as soon as they hear your name, they say, “Oh, we don’t have anything to do with that man.” Are you one like that? You are a blessed man.
