Dear Sisters and Brothers,
When I read this scripture I am reminded of how grateful I am to have eternal life. Jesus said the world hates us because it first hated Him. When walking in your truth does not come in agreement with the flow of the world around you, do not become discouraged but rather remain encouraged knowing our sisters and brothers around the world have endured the same treatment and it’s all because our Truth Is in the Lord and this without compromise. Stand firm in your calling and let no one deter you from it. You may find yourself standing alone but you will never again be lonely.
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
“But after his brothers left for the festival, Jesus also went, though secretly, staying out of public view. The Jewish leaders tried to find him at the festival and kept asking if anyone had seen him. There was a lot of grumbling about him among the crowds. Some argued, “He’s a good man,” but others said, “He’s nothing but a fraud who deceives the people.” But no one had the courage to speak favorably about him in public, for they were afraid of getting in trouble with the Jewish leaders.”
John 7:10-13 NLT
