Many Tribulations

To be saved and follow Jesus is not an easy road. That is why so few follow Jesus. Many believe they are saved but they are not willing to follow Jesus, endure persecustion and suffer trials and tribulations.

The apostle Paul was stoned, dragged out of the city, left for dead and then he got up and walked to the next city where he kept on preaching. We read in Acts 14:21 "After they had preached the gospel to that city and had made many disciples, they returned to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch, 22strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying, “Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.” Acts 14:21

Paul wrote in Romans 5:1 "Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God. 3And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; 4and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; 5and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us."

If we follow Jesus and do what is pleasing to Him we will suffer many trials and tribulations. We have to endure with Jesus and not give up. The apostle James wrote in James 1:12 "Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him."

Are we enduring with Jesus? Are we staying faithful to Him through our trials and tribulations?

May Jesus bless you.
