May the grace of God be with you in Jesus, our Lord and Savior. The messages of truth you are least likely to love are among the ones that give the most definite proof that you are saved.
Did you know that you have not only been appointed to believe in Jesus, but also to suffer for Him?
Phil. 1:29 – …it has been granted to you on Christ’s behalf not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him
Do not choke your zeal for Jesus, to fight to live in a many worthy of Him, to fight for the right Gospel to be taught, because of your fear of the consequences, the afflictions and sufferings that will come. Far too many churches have abandoned this message…You must bear your own cross, You must share in Christ’s suffering, which is done by imitating Christ. It is proof of your salvation.
Phil. 1:27,28 – …live your life worthy of the gospel of Christ…not being frightened in any way by your opponents. This is a sign of destruction for them, but of your salvation—and this is from God.
Search the scriptures my friends, develop a zeal for Jesus, and move boldly forward, proving to yourself that you are indeed saved.
May the Lord strengthen you as you embrace this message and share in His suffering.
In His Name.
