To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in his steps. 1 Peter 2:21 New International Version
Jesus was a very humble, meek, wise and gracious obedient son to His Heavenly Father when He walked amongst us.
Because He was a non conformist (which in todays terms means He was not politically correct) He suffered rejection, scorn, ridicule and even death.
As Jesus is our big brother that gave us the example to live by we are to follow in His foot steps and expect to suffer just as He did .
As Jesus suffered so too will we.
The closer we get to Christ the more we are going to suffer. The more we suffer the closer we get to Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green
You can be sure that satan is not going to allow you a cake walk in your service to Christ. He will put up obstacles, suffering and hardships to discourage you so that you will quit.
The more you suffer the more your pray to Jehovah for strength.
He will oblige you which in turn will reward you with a deeper love and appreciation for Him.
This will make you more determined to continue on in the path Christ has chosen for you.
A non suffering Christian is an contradiction of words (opposite to each other). Joseph- Anthony: Green
To God, our journey is as important as our destinations Beth Moore
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for faithfully encouraging, strengthening and providing for me during my many times of trail and tribulation in my Holy service unto You. I exalt You in the name of He who You strengthened all the way to Calvary Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
