All I can think of is the verse in John 15:18 where Jesus tells us that, "If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first."

Also remember, Jesus is the "rock of offense" (1 Peter 2:7-8). Especially remember verse 9 in 1 Peter "But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness and into His marvelous light" !!

We were never told that it would be easy to follow Jesus. I would suggest that you be bold in your love for Him and pray often for your family. You may be able to win your family over to Christ one day...especially if they can see your words/actions reflecting Him.
