Jesus said many things that caused trouble by not being what people wanted to hear. Among those are when he told Peter that he was free from taxes, but to go pay them anyways. Christians are to bear witness in their lives by living exemplary lives as Christ did.
Paul tells us in Philippians 1:27 to "live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ." What is a life worthy of the gospel of Christ? How do we live that way? Read my message of Philippians 1:27-2:11 titled "Living a Worthy Life."
