“The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name.” Acts 5:41 NIV
Suffering is not fun. However it seems that if we suffer because we are doing the right thing, we are living honestly, we are sticking to the truth, and we are letting ‘the chips fall where they may’, we are entering a different category of suffering... we are suffering for the Name of God.
God stands for justice, honesty, keeping ones word, integrity, respect, and many other things we all know, but when we align with those values we are aligning with God himself. When doing so bright the disciples suffering their reaction was epic: they rejoiced!!!!
They rejoiced because they were thought off as WORTHY by God himself to join him in suffering for what’s right, suffering for the Light. They makes them/us frontliners in the war being waged everyday here on earth.
If God calls our name to stand firm in the frontline of what’s right, let us answer the call and rejoice in it.
