Persecution is a Promise by Robert Ricciardelli
Jesus was persecuted, and promised His followers that persecution would also be their portion. Those who choose to live in God's nature of humility, gentleness, compassion, and mercy, will often be opposed by the world. When we want to become like Christ, we cannot expect always to be liked and admired. We will be received by those searching for God's authentic love, but we also must be prepared to face persecution.
