Opposition

Do they hate you for your message?
Do they rage against the gospel
With the devil's fiercest lies?
Do they label your love hatred
As they call their hatred love?
Do they say you're narrow-minded
And a danger to their lives?
Do they throw you into prison?
Is there murder in their eyes
Caused by hatred of your Jesus?
Praise the Lord! You've been found worthy
To be wounded for your Lord.
By his grace, you'll surely triumph.
Live and death are in his hands.
You are safe within his mercy.
You may die in his great cause,
But your life will not be wasted.
You are his, and he is Lord.

See Acts 17.

But the Jews were jealous, and taking some wicked men of the rabble, they formed a mob, set the city in an uproar, and attacked the house of Jason, seeking to bring them out to the crowd. (Acts 17:5 ESV)
