"For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." - Romans 8 V18
"For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able to subdue all things to Himself" - Philippians 3 V20, 21
Friend, rejoice over your suffering. Do not let Satan think he defeated you, for in this world we will have many tribulations (because Satan rules our world). Glory in the Lord Jesus Christ and serve Him faithfully. Our citizenship is in heaven and we await for that glorious day when our Lord shall come to take us to His kingdom. Keep your eye upon Jesus, and not on the waves of the stormy sea that surrounds us.
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
