hurt is in the package

“You’re going to get hurt.” Did Jesus say that to me or any of his followers?

If Jesus had said that, in one form or another, I will definitely be at ease by now.

But let’s see:

“They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God.” (John 16:2)
“In this world you will have trouble” (John 16:33)

So Jesus did say that and more.

“If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me first.” (John 15:18)

In the light of what Christ said, I would say, “if the church hates you, understand that it hated me first.”

“Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first.” (Revelation 2:4)

“If you keep My commandments, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love.” (John 15:10)
