It is easy to stay with Jesus, to trust and follow Him when life is good and all is going well but we will be tested and tried whether we will stay with Jesus through, tribulation, pain, suffering, disappointment, loss and hardship. Do we only love Jesus in good times and for the good things, or do we turn our back on Him when we have to follow Him in and through hardship? We only prove our love for Jesus if we stay faithful to Him through the bad times.
Job was a righteous man. He had done nothing wrong, but God allowed satan to destroy him in order that his righteousness and love for God could be proven. Job endured and his end was more blessed than his beginning.
If we are not willing to stay with Jesus also throught the bad times, then we are not worthy of Him. The prize, the crown of life, is reserved for those who endure and stay with Jesus until the end.
Do we only praise Jesus in the good times, or do we endure with Him through trials and tribulations? Do we truly love Jesus? Will we stay with Him?
May Jesus bless you
