Understanding Opposition - Sermon on the Mount // Ryan Rhoden August 7, 2016

When we are right with God we will be out of sync with the world, and opposed by a very real spiritual enemy. If we CARRY GOD’S HEART, and RELEASE IT, demonstrate it, and invite people to reconciliation through the GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST, we will face deep opposition on so many levels. But, is this a necessarily a bad thing? Jesus told us to “rejoice, and be glad” when we are persecuted. He said his disciples are Kingdom people and rewarded in heaven when they are persecuted. He showed that being opposed actually gave them an opportunity to be salt and light!
