Persecution?

In Bible study today we looked at 1 Thessalonians 2:13-16. Paul encourages the Christians in Thessalonica not to give up under the pressure they are under from persecution, but to remember that Jesus himself was killed by those who hated him. The fact of the matter is, there are many people out there who are hostile to the Gospel, in varying degrees to be sure. But I cannot strive to please those people because otherwise I'm compromising on the Bible, which I ought never do.

Christians ought to expect persecution in whatever forms. Not to complain about it, but to persevere under it and continue proclaim the truth of Jesus. I ought to be full of grace and to please people when I can, but never compromise the Bible while doing that. :)
