Look at those words, “Worthy of Suffering Disgrace…”
The words, "Worthy" and "Disgrace" mix about as well as oil and water do. In the modern mind, those words are polar opposites! "Worthy" and "Disgrace" Most see those two words as antonyms. There seems to be even a greater contradiction as the disciples were, “rejoicing” because they were considered worthy of disgrace.
Whenever the world mocks us and calls us fools, that ought to produce joy in side of us because such treatment indicates that we belong to God, not to the world.
