I am currently reading 1 Thessalonians during my quiet time. I read this passage yesterday and felt that it was God's encouragement to me and you to keep fighting the good fight:
Paul wants to "establish and exhort you in your faith, that no one be moved by these afflictions. For you yourselves know that we are destined for this. For when we were with you, we kept telling you beforehand that we were to suffer affliction, just as it has come to pass, and just as you know."
1 Thessalonians 3: 2b-4
If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: "No servant is greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me.
John 15: 18-21
"A majority consists of God and a willing servant."

"The problem with critical race theory is much deeper... though. It stems from a fundamental misunderstanding of the complexities of our social and political realities, reducing them to a single factor: racism. But when it comes to how race and power intersect, black history is far, far richer than critical race theorists allow.
Chloe Valdary in Newsweek
