Some people don’t get what God is doing. They see His powerful Spirit working in us and are confused about what it means. They ridicule, scoff, mock and minimize His mighty work. When that happens, we are fortunate. Nothing like some abuse heaped on us because of Him.
God has a goal for us. It may require that to bring glory to God we must suffer. Others may mock us because of what God is doing. We should consider ourselves fortunate. God is in a good mood and he won’t lead us in a direction that he won’t give us strength to endure. The Spirit of the living God is in us and on us. The Spirit that raised our Master from the grave is upon us.
If you’re abused because of the Messiah, count yourself fortunate. It’s the Spirit of God and his glory in you that brought you to the notice of others. 1 Peter 4:14
May I consider myself fortunate when others don’t get Him.
