Matthew 5:11–12 NASB95
“Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Romans 8:14–18 NASB95
For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

Ephesians 5:20
ALWAYS means we should be able to REJOICE, PRAY, and GIVE THANKS in the LIVING ROOM
So that whenever we gather together in ANY ROOM… it because of our continuous REJOICING, PRAYING, and THANKFULNESS… ANY ROOM can be a “LIVING ROOM”
We ARE the Church. These are COMMANDS of THE CHURCH
If we get the VERTICAL RELATIONSHIP in ORDER the HORIZONTAL RELATIONSHIP will not be OUT OF ORDER
If its GETTIN HOT IN HERE… REJOICING, PRAYING, and GIVING THANKS AT ALL TIMES IS THE AIR CONDITIONING!!!!
You have to be CONVINCED that OUR GOD is STRONGER
You have to be CONVINCED that OUR GOD is HIGHER THAN ANY OTHER
