Don't forget all the hard times you went through when you first received the light. Sometimes you were abused and mistreated in public, and at other times you shared in the sufferings of others. You were kind to people in jail. And you gladly let your possessions be taken away, because you knew you had something better, something that would last forever. Keep on being brave! It will bring you great rewards. Learn to be patient, so that you will please God and be given what he has promised. As the Scriptures say, "God is coming soon! It won't be very long.
There are many people around the world who are living in a "War Zone." You may be one of those whose life is consumed with the need to stay safe and avoid the dangers of the conflict that is raging all around you. The war, the sounds of war and the need to avoid becoming a casualty of that war take most of your time during the day and night!
Every follower of Jesus Christ is living in a War Zone! It is the war between Good and Evil, Righteousness and Unrighteousness, Jesus and Satan! The final outcome of that War was decided on the Cross of Calvary, but the battle rages until the final return of Jesus to harvest His people!
If you consider yourself to be a Christian and see no evidence of the war in or even around your life, then that may be a serious warning sign that something is very wrong!
Perhaps, instead of being a soldier in God's Army, you are just a child playing war games with your friends. All of the troops in the Army of Jesus Christ engage the Enemy in the deadly conflict. We are all called to be "front line" soldiers!
If won't be very long until Jesus returns and the war will be over! Be ready for His return and engage the Enemy today!
"Lord Jesus, thank You for winning the War by Your sacrifice on the Cross. Praise Your Holy Name now and forever. Amen."
