Worthy of Persecution?

2 Timothy 3:12Everyone who wants to live a Godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. (NIV 1978)

My Musings – Jesus told us to not be surprised if people hate us, because they hated Him first. Thus, if we want to live like Him, we will most likely be treated that way He was treated.

My Advice – Don’t be surprised that people ridicule you, treat you with contempt or treat you badly because they know you are a Christian.  Do not be ashamed either.  Accept it proudly (but not arrogantly) as a badge of honor that bears witness to the fact that you are “worthy” to be so identified with Jesus.
