Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

This verse strengthens our conviction in following Jesus Christ. When we follow Jesus Christ and walk the way of the cross, we will encounter a lot of persecutions and tribulations, such as the oppressions of the satanic regime, the mockery and insults received from the general public, and the abandonment and misunderstandings of relatives, which bring us much pain. However, we firmly believe no matter what persecutions and hardships, nothing can shake our confidence in following Jesus Christ, for we have glorious hopes in our heart: The path we walk is the right path of life, the path of entering into the heavenly kingdom, and is also the only path of our receiving God’s promise. The present sufferings and tribulations are temporary. Additionally, through experiencing these oppressions and hardships, we gain discernment, see more clearly the darkness and evilness of this world and corrupt mankind’s substance of opposition to God, and meanwhile we also have knowledge of God’s righteousness and holiness. Finally, we can betray Satan, free ourselves from the dark influence of Satan, and be brought into God’s kingdom.
