So I never understood my pastor when he said he liked persecution BUT now I do!
I have learned that persecution is a sign that you are walking on the path God wants you on...if we aren't being persecuted then we probably aren't much of a threat to satan and well, quite frankly, I want to be a christian that IS a BIG threat to satan.
SO....BRING IT ON!
It makes me stronger and more dependant on my Savior and it validates my decision more and more every day!
I get it now.....and I LOVE IT!
