Life for Christ

To be followers of Christ doesn't mean heaven on earth. Neither bed of roses... It is a sacrifice for a greater glory after life on earth. Sacrifice means abstaining from the worldly Lust and Pride of Life and in turn manifesting the life of Christ in us. Be it at work, at home or even with friends. This is our greater calling really. To live for Jesus Christ and to suffer if needed be for His glory.

 

Philippians 1:29 - For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;


I know I know. People are allergic to the word “Suffer”. Who wants to suffer? But that’s reality if we are for Christ. And suffering for a Godly cause, why not? The beauty of having a life for Christ is, despite the suffering, persecution or difficulties, you still able to find Joy. Why Joy? Because you are living your life for Christ, hence fulfilling His will. It’s the ultimate we can do!

 

One other thing, with Christ, we are safe from eternal damnation in Hell...
