Bruised, but not beaten

The New Testament likens a disciple of Jesus with a prize fighter. Now, such a one learns how to roll with the punches. If he’s bruised, he knows the wound will heal quickly, and he’ll be back in the ring. He accepts it as part of his profession.


Likewise, if you’ve been emotionally bruised and beaten because you preach the gospel, roll with the blows. It’s normal for disciples to get bruised. The wounds will heal, and you’ll be back on your feet. They heal faster if you pray for those who inflicted them.
