As we prepare to enter the New Year, there may be some things we will need to leave behind — The Word of our GOD is not one of those things. As we see the times unfolding stepping up our love for and obedience to Thus Saith The LORD will only serve us well!
14 If you are insulted because you bear the name of Christ, you will be blessed, for the glorious Spirit of God rests upon you.
19 So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God*, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you. source
*That is our suffering is not because of sin we have committed, but rather because we ARE being obedient to Him, then* . . . emphasis mine
