How prepared are you to suffer for the faith of Jesus?

Luk 6:26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

Paul WasherHow are you going to deal with it when your neighbors are whispering about  you and your family as, “those haters”? Are you mentally prepared for social rejection, for lies being spread about you and those you love, or for a little jail time?

Pastor Paul Washer has a few thoughts on the subject in the following video:

I hope that we can avoid these things. I don’t not look forward to such times, however we Christians have this great comfort from our Lord:

Mat 5:10-12 Blessed [are] they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when [men] shall revile you, and persecute [you], and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great [is] your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
