"And you will be hated by everyone because of [your association with] My name, but it is the one who has patiently persevered and endured to the end who will be saved" Matthew 10:22 AMP italics and emphasis mine
We all love to be loved, even God himself says, "I love those who love me" [Proverbs 8:17]. We love the feeling we experience in the presence of those who love us. But the fact is, no matter how lovable you are, someone will hate you, even for the very reason that you are lovable.
Jesus warned us that because He loves us, the world will hate us; why? because we have become the last days Joseph – Father's favorites. So, if you are hated because of your faith? be glad God loves you. If the world loves and embraces you, beware you could have compromised your stance.
In His Service,
