12 "But before all this occurs, there will be a time of great persecution. You will be dragged into synagogues and prisons, and you will stand trial before kings and governors because you are my followers.13 But this will be your opportunity to tell them about me.14 So don't worry in advance about how to answer the charges against you,15 for I will give you the right words and such wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to reply or refute you!
I just love this section where Jesus tells us that we will be persecuted and we will have hardships before He returns. But then He adds that when you are dragged to stand trial because we are His followers, it is an opportunity to tell those that persecutes us about Jesus.
Take every moment to show God’s love to those around you, even when they mock and laugh at you. Let the Holy Spirit be your guide.
I will pray that God gives you strength in every hardship.
