The apostles left the high council rejoicing that God had counted them worthy to suffer disgrace for the name of Jesus. Acts 5:41
Do we see very much of this today? It seems to me that people in Christian circles are more likely to set up a boycott about peripheral things than focusing on the main thing: proclaiming Jesus. I want to be known by who and what I’m for. Not what I’m against.
If people are going to hate me, I want to make sure they hate me for the right things.
