Why Can’t They Understand?
Have you experienced big changes in the behavior of friends and family because you follow Christ with your heart? Do they make fun of you? Do they turn their backs on you?
Are you afraid to tell others how much you believe in Christ and how He is the most important thing in your life?
Are you afraid to live your life according to this yearning and belief in Christ because you are afraid of how others will react?
Christ knew that these problems would occur in the lives of many. You are covered! He has your back! Fear not, do not pay attention to the mockery, criticism and behavior of those that turn against you, and continue to live and follow His Way.
49 “I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50 But I have a baptism to undergo, and what constraint I am under until it is completed! 51 Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. 52 From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.” Luke 12:49
