"If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you."
1 Peter 4:14 ESV
It is not a matter of 'if' you are insulted, but 'when'.
"Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted..."
2 Timothy 3:12 ESV"
Reader, be encouraged that when you are being persecuted because of Christ, you are being blessed! Do not allow the experience of persecution to discourage you or cause compromise. In fact, let that experience cause you to come to God all the more in prayer for comfort, strength and praise.
Let us be reminded that whilst we may suffer now for a little while, we bring glory to God if we continue to walk in godliness in all circumstances.
When hesitation, uncertainty and doubt strikes, let the knolwedge of our awaiting eternal rewards but most of all, our mission to glorify our Creator, Saviour and Lord Jesus tip the balance of our decisions and encourage us in all that we do.
