Verse Of The Day : Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Romans 8:35
Thought of The Day : Every true believer in Christ Jesus knows that, Jesus is worth living and dying for.
LISTEN : We (believers) are planted in the love of Christ through faith in God. When we truly know God, we cannot be separated from Him. The decision of every believer in Christ Jesus should be to be forever glued to Him. We should not serve God just for what we can gain in this life, but what we can gain in eternity (John 6:26-27). Even if we lose everything because of our faith in God, we should determine to remain strong and focused on Him who calls us. The Bible says,
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”
Beloved, God’s love for us, and our love for Him should stand the test of time. Your love for God should overcome any storm. If you renounce your faith in Christ because of pressure, it shows you never believed in Him. Those who truly believe in Him are never afraid to suffer for His sake. My dear, fix your eyes on Christ Jesus and don’t be distracted by what you must suffer for His sake. Be prepared to lose yourself in Him and you will gain yourself in Him too. The Bible says,
“For whosoever will save his life shall lose it:
and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”
Remember, Christ is worth dying for, lets live and die for His purpose. Be wise!
