When we walked out of the church I felt like they were driving the nails all over again.
To be honest with you, you probably felt like Jesus did as he walked through the streets on the way to the cross. You felt persecuted for your beliefs and for worshiping your Heavenly Father. Trust me, you will be rewarded in heaven (if not here on earth) for what you all did. You took a stand for your beliefs and did not detour from them like the others wanted. The truth is, they will have to answer for their mistakes- but you all will be commended for standing up for God and His Son. Keep your heart clean and pure and continue to pray for the rest of the congregation that stayed put. Pray they will have a change of heart and feel the conviction of Jesus working in their hearts.
Once again, great job and stay strong!
