honored, respected
held today in harsh contempt
world devoid of truth

Inspiration: Poem describing growing hostility towards Christianity, worldwide. Though this occurs, the Christian must rejoice knowing that Christ spoke of these things and that our hope must remain steadfast. Based upon Matthew 5:11-12 – Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven. ~TRP~
