Luke 13:51-53,” Do you think I have come to give peace to the earth? NO! Rather strife and division! From now on families will be split apart, three in favor of me, and two against, or perhaps the other way around. A father will decide one way about me; his son; the other; mother and daughter will disagree; and the decision of an honored mother-in-law will be spurned by her daughter-in-law.”…………………….As representatives of Christ upon the earth, we should not expect peace in the earth, “because we carry a Gospel, that is provoking to others, “the non-believers. We as reps are so exuberant and zealous about our new found life, that we can’t help but want others to experience the Eternal blessings of life, and it’s Eternal Life reward! That’s why as Christians we have to die to self  daily, so that when persecution arises against us, we will not be dismayed, in our efforts to share Christ with others, “because life with Christ Jesus is a choice,” we must understand that as badly as we hate it, “some will not come into the knowledge of Christ, nor the pardoning of their sins. Never-the-less we don’t know who they may be, ” so we must continue pursuing through prayer, praise, testimonies, witnessing, and living Godly lives before society. And pleading the blood of Jesus, mercy, and grace over each individual until our time on earth is up, however you choose to do it, just make it  happen, and perhaps one day you will see those that you vexed so, standing with Christ, and what a joy that will be. Peace be unto you!

It’s very true that the truth hurts and can be very painful to those who refuse to acknowledge it. But as believers we still have an obligation and responsibility to share it anyway. We have to do what 2 Timothy 4:2 says, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” Although the word hurts sometimes, that same word can turn around and heal. God Bless you.
