Read 1st Peter 1:6-7
Be jubilant when you see all these arrows are aimed at you as if you are the only one who is fighting a mighty army. This reaction might make outsiders think that Christians are foolish or crazy when they rejoice amidst suffering and trials that usually come pleural. Remember those who faced the fiery furnace, the lions’ den, a ship wreck, a storm, etc. They became much stronger like gold refined by fire.
