Leap for Joy

On Ray Comfort’s facebook page yesterday, someone asked him, “How can we best cope with the criticism and abuse thrown upon us because of the stand we take for Christ and the Word of God?”

He replied, “When I get abused for being a Christian or for a stand on righteousness, I rejoice and leap for joy. It takes some effort, but I do it no matter how I feel. Try it the next time the world or some rotten circumstance comes against you… physically leap for joy (it will make you smile):

“‘Blessed are you when men hate you, and when they exclude you, and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of Man’s sake. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy! For indeed, your reward is great in Heaven, for in like manner their fathers did to the prophets.'” (Luke 6:22-23)

This passage was also part of my daily reading this morning.
