Trouble, trouble, trouble; sorrow, sorrow, sorrow; bitterness, bitterness, bitterness; these are the fruits of this Earth. Yet, peace and joy is found in Jesus Christ our Lord who gave up His life for us. No matter how a man tries, you cannot succeed a day without Him. He was here before us and knows the deep secret of this Earth. If we’re truthful to Him, He’ll neither leaves us nor forsake us.
If your desire is to live and please Jesus Christ at all cost, know it for sure you’re embarking on a lonely journey. Jesus declared in the Book of Matthew 7:13-14 that, “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” The world loves lies, but truth and peace is found in our Lord and Saviour. The Lord Himself declared in the Book of Luke 14:26 that, “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.” And to comfort us in the journey, He also declared in the Book of John 14:27 that, “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.” In addition to this, He also declared in the Book of John 16:33 that, “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” I pray that, as we embark on this lonely journey, may He who shed His precious blood for us hold us by the hand and lead and guide us till the end. Amen!
