Again and again you are mistreated. You are lied to, cheated and stolen from. The things that you have by right, the things given to you by God, are withheld. And your freedoms, they are turned into shackles and bonds.
Your Lord Jesus Christ knows all about it. He knows you are short changed. He knows you have been denied good and evil has been returned for your deeds done in him. He counts you worthy to suffer for his name. He said of his servants that no servant is greater than his master and that it is enough for a servant to be as his master. He counts you his servant.
And you might think that you suffer not in accordance with bearing his name. Well, is good withheld from you in an undue manner? Is someone trying to take away your freedom in Christ and replace it with a worldly way or false assertion? What ought you do? How ought you combat such a thing?
Take up the sword that is the Word of God. When you are faced with lies, deceptions, half-truths, the appearance of dignity but the lack thereof, take up what God truly says. That sin is punished, but it is punished all in Christ.
This is how it will be tolerable. All the denials, all the thieving, all the withholding of what belongs to you, what God has given you. You can recall that in Christ, the sin is punished. And those who turn to him will live. Those who sin against you are forgiven freely. They can not hurt you. Their sins only hurt themselves. It is time to exalt him when you are being debased.
The Word of God will work, as it always does, it is a fiery sword, just as it is cooling waters. May those who wrong you be granted repentance, for they are in need. And you will regardless receive back all that God intends you to have. Rejoice when you are lied to, cheated and stolen from. God counts you worthy to bear it. He counts you as his. He likens you to his Son. You are his servant.
