Getting Into Trouble

Trouble, no matter how you define it, usually comes. It’s an inevitable part of life. It has a way of finding you, even if you ‘mind your Ps and Qs. In the media, I continue to read about Christians getting into trouble because of their beliefs. I think they take solace in the idea that “If you find that the world despises you, remember that before it despised you, it first despised Me. If you were a product of the world order, then it would love you. But you are not a product of the world because I have taken you out of it, and it despises you for that very reason” #Jesus  Our walk by faith, if it is true biblical faith, will get us in trouble, wrote, AW Tozer. 
Are you in Trouble? 
All to often Christians get themselves into trouble not  because they wear the countenance of Christ, but because their attitudes are anything but Christ-like.  Put another way, sometimes we believers are despised, not because we are like Christ but because we are not like Him. What I find interesting is that even ppl who don’t “know” Jesus know what His attitudes and persona should look like — often times believers totally miss this mark. In the quote above Jesus warns of the mistreatment His followers can expect, but Christ followers need to make sure they’re getting in trouble for the right reasons.
