"when the world hates you, remember it hated me before it hated you. The world would love you if you belonged to it, but you don't. I chose you to come out of the world, and so it hates you". Listen, your going to go through rough times, and your going to be persecuted, it's just a fact. But when you do get persecuted you win. Matthew 5:10- "God blesses those who are persecuted because they live for God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs". We win when were persecuted, we win, when we lead people to Christ. So don't sell your joy so cheaply. Just remember, because of Jesus, WE WIN!!!
