"If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.
Remember the word that I said to you: 'A servant is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.
Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy. 16:21 When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. 16:22 So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
2 Timothy 3:12
Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,
For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 8:17 and if children, then heirs--heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him. 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
