Christians should not be surprised when they are persecuted for their faith; they should be [concerned] if they are not.
This persecution should not come from a lack of Christlikeness or from a shortage of visible fruit from ones life in the Spirit, but rather from an overflow of such things in our attitudes, words, and actions.
Unfortunately, in our world today persecution due to these things is as likely to come from those within the church as from without.
