Blessed are you when men cast insults at you, and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely on account of Me. Rejoice, and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Saints, do not expect all who see the Jesus in you to rejoice and be glad for you! When you live for Christ, you will make decisions concerning lifestyle, morality, etc. which will conflict with their lifestyle. While they run in error and in excess, you can be sure that they will not understand why you do not!
When you make decisions that are compatible with a Godly life, they may even mock or deride you for your stance. When this occurs, stand strong for what you know is the Godly decision. They will not understand but your reward will be great in heaven.
We have not been physically persecuted in America but, still, we must be ready for all things. Let's not allow ourselves to be "at ease in Zion." Stay strong and fully equipped to be the soldier in the army of God, fully armored, and ready to war! Stand in His strength and know that He is always there for us!
