Suffer for Christ
The more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort.
For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ.
All the glory and praises to God the Holy Father in Jesus’ precious and loving name !
Beloved brethren, from the time immemorial the world has witnessed the persecution of those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord. Certainly, the same persecution continues even to these modern times. Although these sufferings never ceased, it did not deter the people to proclaim Jesus as their Lord and Savior. As the Holy Scriptures says, we shall have many trials and sorrows, but still we can have peace in Jesus’ name.
‘I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”’John 16:33
Comfort of Christ
As the apostle Paul says, even when we are subjected to these troubles or sorrows; the Almighty shall never abandon us. His presence shall be with us and lift us up — mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Yes, those who set their sight upon the Lord and remember the pain that He endured on the Calvary Cross shall never shy to suffer for His sake. Further as the Bible says, the more we suffer for Christ, the more we shall have His comfort. Even more, by the same comfort of Christ, we too shall comfort those who are in their afflictions.
Dear brethren, the sufferings that we shall have in this world only strengthens our spiritual life. Moreover as the apostle Paul put it, this momentary affliction shall prepare us for eternal glory. Therefore, take heart for the comfort of Jesus shall always be in our lives till we return to the Lord for eternity. Amen.
