They Will Hate You.

HE GIVES PEACE

And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. Matthew 10:22 New King James Version                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

Have you ever met someone who hates you because you are a Christian?             

You do not wear your Christianity on your sleeve for everyone to see but are living a quiet Christian life but some people just hate you. They cannot say a good thing about you. They take every opportunity to make your life miserable.                        

You know the reason why?                                                                                                 

It is because when they see your holiness (Yes Christians are holy but that does not mean we are perfect. It means we live according to the standards laid out by Jesus not the world) and it convicts them of their sinful lifestyle. They like living in that filth but your holiness exposes it for what it really is.                                           

No, that is not a guilty conscience, that is the Holy Spirit convicting them of their sin and they stubbornly refuse to repent of it.                                                                  

Just as the self righteous hated Jesus, so too will the self righteous hate you. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                                   

Men reject Christ for moral reasons not philosophical ones. They are sinners and they now it but refuse to admit it. Vance Havner.                                                           

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Shaddai (God who is sufficient for the needs of His people) for supplying me with the wisdom, strength and grace to accept that when people hate me because I am Your child, it is not really me they hate it is You. Even though it is piercing of the heart I thank You for Your bountiful love and strength to carry on. In the name of He who carried on all the way to the cross Jesus Christ  I thank you. Amen.                                                                                    

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. People love darkness and love others who practice what they do. No one likes to be reminded of their errant lifestyle of sin. But these people lash out in hatred and anger, and sadly, many of them will never be any different. We see examples of sinful people clinging to their ways even in the face of condemnation throughout scripture, especially in Revelation.

    May God help them to change their ways…

    • And it cuts my heart deep when it is loved ones that reject the light. I do not hate them I am bitterly (deep anguish) sorrowful over it

      • Well our feelings run more deeply for them than perhaps for other friends, etc. It’s natural to want them to accept the gospel of Christ more quickly and readily than any others…
