John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.'
Anyone who truly gives their life to the Lord Jesus will suffer persecution.
The Lord Jesus says in John 16:33 ‘I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.’
This is my mikehill4jesus Prayer Garden
As a Witness for the Lord Jesus Christ, I suffer a lot of mental and social abuse from those who hate my Lord Jesus and Me. Therefore, it's good to have a place for certain prayers, reflection, bible study and meditation. All Visitors are greatly effected and become peaceful.
The noun persecution is related to persecute, which comes from Latin persecut-, meaning “followed with hostility.” Persecution means hassling or singling out a person or group because of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, or social status.
The Lord Jesus suffered persecution. He voluntarily submitted to it. He was patient while under it. As He said above, those as described in John 14:23, his spiritually converted Disciples, may expect it.
His spiritually converted Disciples suffer it for the sake of God. Their persecution, is a persecution of the Lord Jesus. To repeat because it's important. All that live godly in Christ, shall suffer.
Why is there persecution?
Disciples suffering persecution should.
This all happened because I simply trusted the Lord Jesus and loved Him for what he did for me, a wicked and lost soul.
