As Born Again people
We will suffer in this world, but we are not of this world.
“This world is not our home. We are just passing through. We do not belong here. Everything down here offends us as Christians if we are a true believer. We march to a different drumbeat. What the world applauded, we don’t. What the world approves of, we don’t. We get offended by the things we see on the television, we get offended by the things we read online and in the paper. No one cares about us, or our likes, or our dislikes. We are the smallest minority group on Earth. We are living for Christ in a hostile world that is corrupt and broken because of sin. It is anything but easy. The Lord never said the Christian life would be easy. ” – Pastor Allen
While you are here arm yourself with the power of God. Pray, read God’s word, worship Him, and praise him. He will walk you through and be there by your side during troubles and tribulations. I really don’t know how unsaved people get through the tough times in life on their own. The hard times is when we need to lean on him the most and give him the weight to carry our burdens. He want’s to do that for you. I know God has done this for me many times and he is with me always no matter what is going on.
1 Peter 5:8-11
8 Be Sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour: 9 whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, Make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen
