When you are persecuted ... you are blessed

From the April 14, 1986 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


If you had been with Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane, would you have readily foreseen the Easter outcome of his being seized by armed men? Imprisoned with Paul, would you have sung hymns with undiminished faith and fervor? It's not always easy to sort out what is actually going on in the midst of daily events. When we look back after the dust has settled, from the perspective of history, we may feel the triumph of good was self-evident.
