Message of the Day: Christians Endure Afflictions Joyfully, Prayerfully!
“…rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer..” (Romans 12:12, NKJV)
Christians must be sincere and straightforward in everything they do. They must in particular have a loving care for those who are fellow members of Christ’s body. Besides being spiritually enthusiastic, they must work hard at developing qualities of perseverance and prayerfulness. They must also be generous in giving practical hep to their fellow believers. (12:11-13)
The certainty of our hope is a cause for joy. Affliction is our inevitable experience. We suffer for Christ’s sake and for his honor. We will endure each and every affliction triumphantly! Furthermore, in order to discharge properly the duties of the Christian life, and especially to maintain a joyful hope, and to be sustained in the midst of afflictions, it is necessary to cherish a spirit of prayer, and to live near to God.
