"We give no offence in anything, that our ministry may not be blamed. But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distress" - 2 Corinthians 6 V3, 4
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?" - Romans 8 V35
The Apostle Paul suffered many persecutions. Even after being near to Christ and led by the Holy Spirit, he suffered many tribulations and distress. Anyone in the apostle Paul's position would have been easily discouraged and would have questioned God's love. But on the contrary the apostle Paul never questioned the love of God and remained faithful to the end. He believed that nothing could separate him from the love of Christ. This is true for each one of us who trusts in Christ. Nothing can separate us from the love of Christ. We may experience the chastening of our Lord when we do not walk in His will but still our Lord will not abandon us and He will continue to love us. Praise God for His love for His children.
"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!
