"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." - John 16 V33

"But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world." - Galatians 6 V14

The life of Paul the Apostle was full of suffering after he came to know the Lord Jesus Christ. But Paul rejoiced in the Lord and for him to live was Christ and to die was gain. Can we all Christians say the same as Apostle Paul did? Can we glory in our tribulations and suffer happily for Christ? As Christians we are called to carry our cross and follow Jesus, not because Christ wants us to suffer but because we are called to reach to the lost world and our trials and tribulations are nothing compared to the glory that lies ahead. Christ has overcome the world and He has made us victors in Him. The Devil can only cause harm because the Lord lets him, but his time is short. Be of good cheer and serve Christ faithfully. 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!
