The Word for Thursday, 24 May 2018
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.
Matthew 5:11-12 (ESV)
Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit,
gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God,
and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.
And he said, Behold, I see the heavens opened,
and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.
Acts 7:55-56 (ESV)
