When we come to Christ we are not entering a flower garden, rather, we are entering a place full of thorns where we need the strength of God to be able to overcome the different difficulties that come our way. This is not an easy path, but it is not an impossible one either, because our Christ has shown us that we can overcome, because He defeated the world and this is our hope: “If He overcame, we can overcome”.
Jesus, having a conversation with His disciples told them:
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
