In its beginnings, Christianity was the victim of great persecutions, prisons, deaths, that is, being a Christian cost the lives of thousands of people in their beginnings, and we saw this in middle age in the same way. They were objects of ridicule by kings, principals and important people of the time. On the other hand, it should not seem strange to think that in the 21st century we continue to suffer different persecutions in certain countries.
We must never weaken our faith by the trials and difficulties that we face on a daily basis, since we have been promised eternal life, and when it says eternal it is truly eternal. We should feel the happiest beings in the world for this fact, can you imagine worshiping God for an eternity? Glory to God!
The apostle Paul said:
11 Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him;
12 if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us;
13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.
2 Timothy 2:11-13
