I remembered the statement that said, "When you become a Christian, you have just joined the unpopular crowd." The more I grow into the Christian life, the more I understand why the world hates Christians. John 15:18-19 and James 4:4 declares the glorious truth that when you are accepted of God, you cannot be accepted of man. If you are of the world, you are an enemy of God and if you are a friend of God, you are an enemy of the world. I see no reason why I should seek to be accepted by the enemy and I only expect my life to become more complicated as I grow in grace in Jesus Christ. I do not expect to live a life free from attacks, in fact I am always waking up expecting another attack from the enemy. When Satan attacks the believer, I can take assurance in the fact that he cannot attack me unless he gets permission from God. 1 Timothy 3:2 says that those who live godly lives will suffer persecution. Because Christians are going to live godly by the grace of God then they should expect persecution from the world.
John Bunyan's quote here says that Christ is the whole armory. In Ephesians 6:10-18, we are to wear the Armor of God but where can be get it? Remember the helmet is salvation, the breastplate is Christ's righteousness because ours will not help, faith is the shield that keeps the Christian going, being in Christ gets one ready for spiritual attacks, the truth of Christ is the belt that keeps us away from our dishonest habits and the sword is the Word of God. The whole battle is fought daily and Christians should never expect permanent rest until they are called Home to be with the LORD.
