Message 60:6

But fear not men, nor what they may say of this work, for in their hearts is selfishness and hate. They are carnally minded and cannot see the Lord’s hand move, but seek their own glory and not the glory of the Lord.

It is very difficult to not listen to the people who persecute the followers of Christ, but that is exactly what we are supposed to do. The men in the world who do this evil are not doing the Lords work and they will receive their sad end.

2 Timothy 3:12-15

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

There will be lots of things that will try to pull us away from Christ. These could be the people in our everyday life or temptations that we run into from time to time. We will even be persecuted for our love of Christ. In all of these trails and temptation we must remain strong and true. For only Christ can give us salvation.
