Said Jesus in John 15:18-21
“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you… If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you… because they do not know Him who sent Me.”
When I became a Christian, I expected persecution. What I was not prepared for was that the majority of this persecution would come from those professing Christ.
I have more Christians today on the Internet attacking my identity in Christ than I ever had leading me to Christ before I was saved.
How sad is that?
So, my dear Christian brother or sister… remember the planks in your eye and, TODAY, tell someone out there of God’s greatness that despite those planks, God saved you!
