Pondering the Scriptures Sunday #18

If you stand for something you believe in, you are being true to yourself.  If you stand for Christ, you are standing in righteousness and blessed by God.

Let's take a look at reproach today.  ~Here are some scriptures on the subject:
  • 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.  1 Peter 4:14
  • Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.  Isaiah 51:7
  • Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man:  thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.  Psalm 31:20
  • And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake:  but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.  Matthew 10:22


  1. It's probably safe to assume that Isaiah and the author of Psalms did not stand for Christ ;)

    Nonetheless I love the particular passages you've selected. I always enjoy coming here :)
