Matthew 5: 1-12 | King James Audio Bible | KJV | King James Version

‘Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.’ (Matthew 5:11, KJV)

In this Beatitude, Jesus acknowledges the blessing that comes to His followers when they endure reviling, persecution, and false accusations for His sake. It is a reminder that standing firm in faith and allegiance to Jesus, even in the face of opposition and false accusations, is a mark of true discipleship.

Beatitudes Living In The Light Of Jesus Christ | Meditations On The Love Of Jesus Christ

Reviling refers to being spoken ill of, insulted, or demeaned because of Christian faith. Persecution may involve being mistreated, harassed, or even physically harmed for identifying as a follower of Jesus. False accusations are the lies and slander directed towards Christians, aiming to discredit our character and faithfulness.

While these experiences can be painful and disheartening, Jesus assures us that we are blessed when we endure such hardships for his sake. It is a mark of our allegiance to Jesus and a sign that we are living according to Jesus’ truth. In these moments, Christians find comfort in knowing that we are not alone, for Jesus himself faced reviling, persecution, and false accusations during his earthly ministry.

As followers of Jesus, we are called to respond to reviling, persecution, and false accusations with grace, love, and a steadfast commitment to truth. We should not be discouraged by the world’s reaction but rather find strength in knowing that we share in the sufferings of Christ.

The promise in this Beatitude is that those who endure reviling, persecution, and false accusations for the sake of Jesus are blessed. We find solace in the knowledge that our reward is great in heaven. While the world may revile and reject Christians, God sees our faithfulness and will honour us in His kingdom.

‘For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake.’ (Philippians 1:29, KJV)
