John 10:32-33 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
We must help Sons and Daughters of God not persecute other Sons and Daughters of God. When one of them dares rise up with Christ-like ministry, other children of God start throwing rocks! Ouch!
Ministers: this must not be! Have we not raised them better? We must help our flocks see that there is nothing wrong with being a full fledged adult Child of the King, in action ministering to the world around us.
Full of the same Holy Spirit about our Father's business... will they not be instant targets just like Christ was? Let us protect and encourage them at every corner. Help them by instructing others to pick up love and kindness, but never rocks.
Let us pray for our Heavenly Father raise up more Christ-like laborers. Let us pray for the laborers to see themselves in even more of the glorious fullness of Christ.
Let us reduce the kind of persecution Christ suffered. It's okay to be Christ-like.
Meditation: 1 John 4:17 ...As He is, so are We in this world.
