  • How many times I have been ridiculed, by those of my own household! As reading and believing Paul's word I feel compelled even as him, to justify myself before others for my faith. Compelled by the love of Christ, i wish to know him more, being led by His spirit, living for Him in a time of adversity and unbelief, even among those of your own household! This example also with him, and those who are of the household of God!

    Paul never experienced the adversity of a family, or the repercussions of growing and being unequally yoked, this is a condition that is found I think in many a circumstance who live together! Growing together in the gospel, I find a struggle, even as a race not only for the grace found in Christ, but the support we need for each other. Paul, expresses this same, even as He was married to the church and his followers, experiencing these same things we as head of households experience! A natural condition for all who are followers of Christ. Growing in the Love we so desperately need!

    Thank you for your reply! It is nice to know the feelings and desires ,even as the disciples. knowing and sharing as one another in power and not word!

    Paul , was ship wrecked, jailed , beaten, an hated by many ,.. after meeting Jesus on the road to Damascus,.. which that too left a nice scar,.. I'd say, Paul certainly had it a lot worse, than many of us realized,.. being a Christian at that time an point, was turbulent,.. Not so much today in most cases,.. yes , there are some places that are very dangerous today but not all

    If we live according to the spirit, we will see and experience the same things as the disciples. Again, these things from the past are still prevalent today! Walking with Christ, being in the spirit, always abounding one too another. Thank you for your reply. Be vigilant and watch, the days of judgment are upon us! Always abiding in the spirit of the Living Christ!
