(KJV.) ROMANS 8:35-37
(35) Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
(36) As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
(37) Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
THE PILGRIM PROGRESS
Brethren, regardless of what is happening negatively all over this world; as believers, let us have hope in Jesus Christ without wavering, persevere steadfastly with faith, in the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; whether we experience worldwide persecutions, national adversities, discomfiture, harassments, grieves, hunger and thirst for righteousness sake, unprotected, without any defense, exposed to dangers of terrorisms and martyrdoms, let us not be frightened at all in this world, to have anxieties, backslide from the body of Christ, but rather, pray fervently, be encouraged to know that though believers are persecuted on earth, there is peace and joy awaiting them in everlasting life, and cannot die eternal death; they are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ, who loves them, that he gave himself up as a sacrificial lamb, slaughtered to take away the iniquities of this world, granted salvation, free grace and everlasting life to all those who believes in him as the Son of our Father, Lord and Savior of this world of darkness.
Therefore, as Jesus Christ ministered to multitudes on earth, finished his assignment successfully, received the name above all names, that in his Holy Name, all knee should bow, receive their heart desires; accordingly, each and every soul has his or her own assignment to accomplish on earth; we may know beginnings of our pilgrimages, where we are presently, no one knows exactly when their days will end on earth; but everyone will face death someday, one way or another; as Jesus faced his death on the cross, rose again from the dead, ascended into heaven; as believers, doing his will on earth, someday we will have to face our own deaths as well, no one knows exactly how this will happen; therefore, let us be prepared just in case he appears in the skies today; be mindful of where we will go after we sleep in death, readily prepare ourselves for the unknown, as well as, have hope of eternal lives with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Dearly beloved, as humanity, we are on pilgrimage in this world, let us take moments of our lives seriously, cherish gifts, talents within our spirits, utilize them for the glory of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, be happy with who we are in this world, enjoy each and every moment of our lives, as if, our last days on earth, love one another, care for people around us, regardless of how we may feel about them, forgive offenders, forget the offenses, embrace life each morning with cheerful hearts; the psalmist said, This is the day which the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24); therefore, let us rejoice and be glad that we are still alive on earth, cast all our cares upon Jesus Christ, for he cares about our souls, trust, believe, hope in him forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
QUOTE OF THE DAY:
(KJV.) Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
