Christians believe that, if it's in God's will they have to be ready to suffer from being persecuted from bearing Christ's name. It doesn't follow that persecution is good for them. The latter implies we seek for being persecuted in a way Sadomasochists seek for being hurt because it feels good for them. The difference is one is ready when it comes but doesn't see it desirable, the other sees persecution as desirable situation.
