It’s hard to believe that family members will turn on you, for believing in & loving the Lord. There are a few examples of Biblical people who were hated for letting their light shine, for God. And the world is full of people hated & persecuted for following Jesus. A 12 year old deaf girl Saree, was beaten almost to death & kicked out Hindu family’s house, because she converted to Christianity , but she never refused to deny Christ. One of Saree’s aunts, a devout Christian , took her to her church. “Your family members are not believers in the true God,” she told her niece. “ But I am. Come with me. My God will heal you.” Dear friends , you can expect to lose friends when becoming a Christian & you will lose & be hated by family members also, but the Lord will replace them, with true brothers & sisters I can speak from experience, cause I have a church family. God bless you all. Scripture sent by Sam H.
