Message of the Day: To Be Patient in Affliction is A Mark of A Christian.

“…rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer…” (Romans 12:12, NKJV)

We find three verbs here, in hope, rejoicing in tribulation, enduring; in prayer, persevering. Each of these exercises helps the other. If our “hope” of glory is so assured that it is a rejoicing hope, we shall find the spirit of endurance in tribulation natural and easy; but since it is prayer which strengthens the faith that begets hope and lifts it up into an assured and joyful expectancy, and since our patience in tribulation is fed by this, it will be seen that all depends on our perseverance in prayer.

Besides being spiritually enthusiastic, they must work hard at developing qualities of perseverance and prayerfulness. They must also be generous in giving practical help to their fellow believers.

The certainty of our Christian’s hope is a cause for joy. To endure triumphantly is necessary for us because affliction is our inevitable experience. However, we must not only pray in hard times, but also maintain communion with God through prayer at all times. To be patient in affliction is a mark of a Christian.
