PROMISES TO THEM THAT SUFFER FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS’ SAKE

“He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it” (Matthew
10:39).

“If we suffer, we shall also reign with him” (2Timothy 2:12).

“Every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children,
or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life” (Matthew
19:29).

“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

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: for so
persecuted they the prophets which were before you” (Matthew 5:10-12).

“If so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Who shall separate us from
the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or
sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the
slaughter.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us” (Romans
8:17, 35-37).

“Persecuted, but not forsaken” (2Corinthians 4:9).

“If ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
for it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing” (1Peter 3:14,
17).

“For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in
yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.
Cast not away therefore your
confidence, which hath great recompence of reward” (Hebrews 10:34, 35).

“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange
thing happened unto you: but rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when
his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
If ye be reproached for the name
of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil
spoken of, but on your part he is glorified” (1Peter 4:12-14).
