When people did not accept my born again faith and friends hated me

Luke 6:22 AM Blessed (happy–with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, apart from your outward condition–and to be envied) are you when people despise (hate) you, and when they exclude and excommunicate you [as disreputable] and revile and denounce you and defame and cast out and spurn your name as evil (wicked) on account of the Son of Man (23) Rejoice and be glad at such a time and exult and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is rich and great and strong and intense and abundant in heaven; for even so their forefathers treated the prophets.

If your family or your friends or both turn on you for accepting Jesus as your Savior, know that Jesus went through exactly the same thing, He understands! I know it’s painful to go through this kind of rejection. Ask God to make you able to love those who persecute you and pray for them. What helped me a lot was a simple thought: Don’t get mad at them, God loves them as much as He loves you. He will provide great new friends who share your faith and your family (if not born again)  will end up by respecting your beliefs and they can be saved too so don’t stop praying for them 💖
