“You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.“
2 Timothy 2:3
The world keeps coming up with new ways of self-expression and enjoyment that it is fast-tracking itself into a place of doom even before hell comes. In the midst of this, it is quite impossible for a Christian to escape a certain measure of hardness. And if hardness will come, we must be well-prepared with God’s strength so we might endure it and come out on the other side victorious, and with an enlarged capacity.
It is our default settings as humans to seek ease, and while that is understandable, we must never be caught as Christians taking the sinful easy way out because we fear what we will find on the hard way.
Hard times will come because the best results do not come easy. They require discipline, total submission and endurance. The beautiful thing is that these times always provide the most fascinating results.
Lord, please, help me to endure hard times as a good soldier of Christ. I receive the grace to endure to the end, so we do not miss out on the big picture.
