Luke 6:22,23 - "Blessed are you when men shall hate you...for the Son of man's sake. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy for your reward is great in heaven..."
When persecution comes, when friends or family criticize you because you love Jesus, and aren't afraid to say so, rejoice! Shout hallelujah and leap for joy!
Paul said, "I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us (Romans 8:18)."
Get caught up in producing fruit through advancing in God's purpose for your life. Get caught up in the glorious hope that's ahead. For that hope is enough to make anyone -- under any circumstance -- leap for joy!
