1 Peter 4:14
If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
We should count it an honor when we are persecuted for the name of Christ. When suffering occurs, it is a true indication that the Spirit of glory and God rests upon us. The same Jesus who is blasphemed by the persecutors is glorified by His suffering saints.
