"And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me." - Matthew 10 V38

"Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time for the lusts of men, but for the will of God." - 1Peter 4 V1,2

The moment we become a follower of Christ, we put ourselves in a position hated by this world. We get in the list of Satan whom he would like to persecute and even kill. But greater is He who is in us than he who is in this world. Satan has been already defeated and he knows his time is near and he will do all he can to keep us from drawing near to God. Christ left us on the earth so we can be the light of this world and bring those who are in darkness to light. We are called to suffer for the cause of spreading the good news of salvation and he who overcomes until the end will rule and reign with the King of Glory. Praise the Lord!

"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!
