Correct. Keep up the good work.

Jesus says: "But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you in order that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous." Matthew 5:44-45  (NAS)

Consider also these scriptures that the Lord left to prepare His followers for the persecution:

"Bless those who persecute you; bless and curse not." Romans 12:14 (NAS)

"Remember the word that I said to you, 'A slave is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also." John 15:20 (NAS)

"But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and will persecute you, delivering you to the synagogues and prisons, bringing you before kings and governors for My name's sake." Luke 21:12 (NAS)

"Blessed are you when men cast insults at you, and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, on account of Me. Rejoice, and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you." Matthew 5:11-12 (NAS)

Are you willing also to suffer persecution for your belief in, confession of, and obedience to Christ?
