Luke 4:24 – "And he said, Amen, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own native place."
You have changed and people don't like it. Family, friends associates, they do not like the person you are trying to become and they don't like the fact that you have realized that you ARE a true Son and Daughter of God. In as much as they may say certain things, you can be certain that it will be hard for you to be accepted in your own home, among your friends and family. Change is hard, especially when others around you are unwilling to change. People want comfort and they are comfortable in their own ways. God is trying to get you UNCOMFORTABLE and get those around you uncomfortable with their own lives, sinfulness and sadness. Don't let anyone bring you down this day. I understand 150% how you feel as not being accepted in your own Church, but that is okay… Jesus was not accepted either… so we both are in good company, right? Jesus is the fulfillment of the Law and there is no doubt, so keep on preaching, keep on serving and keep on loving those who despise you, those who do not believe that you have changed, pray for them… that they also may change, for the greater Glory of God!
Blessings and Peace to you today and remember – KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON!
