They are my family too, even so I look forward to their ordeal that they might "know me".

And evangelical Christians are my family.

After the humiliation the real reason for being caught in this net will appear

"Whoever loses his life for my sake and the truth's sake will save it"

There is no greater love except a man lay down his life for a new life in the Spirit. First there will be bitter struggles in families and misunderstandings and stumbling to find YOU, my life. But if a man loves his children he will hate them for the truth's sake and go and find the spirit in his own loneliness and humiliation that "through the Spirit" they (his children) might be saved. "For You are able, my life" They will hate him, not knowing the true intentions of his heart. If a man does not love his children enough to leave that he might find the Spirit than he does not deserve to enter into the kingdom.

Luke 14:26 (New International Version)
New International Version (NIV)

26"If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—he cannot be my disciple.

Get ready for the Wild Ride!
For more on the Spirit of the Cross see the words below
Leave =
Bitter= As in the bitter vinager given on the cross 049179 "There is only YOU, my life, all other obsessions turn bitter.  
Humiliation=    looking unto Jesus…who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame… Hebrews 12.2 0dd317
The humiliation of understanding the least on this planet is to be changed and be seen as a criminal, an outcast, rejected by society placed in the group of theives. Then You find that the world that judged You does not know the "intentions of the heart" of the least of them. This is the path to knowing the heart of God.
