Christians Can't Expect a Big Pat on Their Back

BEHOLD, WHAT manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him: for we shall see Him as He is.  And every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure.  1 John, Chapter 3, verses 1-3.

Christians can’t expect this big pat on their back and an “Atta Boy” from society for all their dedication to their faith.  The majority of society is too busy living worldly lives to focus on acknowledging people who make sacrifices because of their commitment to God.  They wouldn’t understand what is involved because they don’t know God in their lives.  Their worldly choices cloud the Light that God provides to lead them to Salvation.

Because this is an example of how I’ve applied this Bible passage to my life, it doesn't necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the passage.

This is a connection I've made from this Bible passage. Please share your connections.
