Being a follower of Jesus can bring us more criticism than comfort.
Jesus knows his followers will face ridicule, insult, and even violence for proclaiming God’s unconditional love and forgiveness to a skeptical world. By our baptism we are united to Jesus by God’s Holy Spirit, which means that Jesus now helps us carry our earthly burdens. “Come to me, all you who are weary…and I will give you rest,” Jesus says, “Learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart.” ~Matthew 11:16-19; 25-30
