I am very fortunate when I take grief because I follow our Master Jesus. Those who insult me cast blame – thinking that I am really guilty and therefore deserving punishment. Maybe I am guilty. Maybe I am not. It doesn’t really matter why they think that way.
Those who make fun of me don’t know it is the Spirit of God bringing notice to His work in me. I shouldn’t give it a second thought. I should be proud of His absolute perfection.
May derision bring me happiness. May I be more than happy.
If you are mocked and insulted for the name of the Messiah, you are more than happy, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 1 Peter 4:14
