"No one really wants to hear what we have to say about the love of Jesus until they’ve seen it in our lives."

LIVING out faith in Christ is important. But even then, Christians can expect to be misunderstood and reviled. No matter; because of the incredible grace of God and not by our deserving, we belong to Christ forever!

Jesus says:
“Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

“You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot. “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5:11-16)
