Are people putting me down because of my following Jesus? Do I make others uncomfortable with my passion of our Lord? Uncomfortable questions in a culture that values “not rocking the boat”.
Jesus challenges me to not live a comfortable life. Being a follower of Jesus should get me in trouble with others.
I need to remember this is not about me but it is about Jesus. They are doing it to discredit Him not me.
Oh well. I am more than happy (blessed) when it happens.
Count yourselves blessed (more than happy) every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable.” ~~Jesus (Matthew 5:11-12 The Message)
