When Others Are Against Me
You are persecuted when other people go against you because you are a Christian or because you are doing God's work. They may cut you off from belonging to their group. They may not listen to you, talk to you or help you in times of need. They may fight against you with words and they may even cause you physical harm. Paul says that the real fight is not against people made of flesh and blood but against spiritual power (Eph 6:12). But this doesn't mean that Satan doesn't use people to fight against you too. He does! If he can't spoil your life from within through fear, anger, shame or pride,he will try to spoil your life from without through people's criticism, hatred and opposition.
