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
Amen to that
AMEN. AMEN .
AMEN to our Lord God and Savior , Thank you Jesus Christ for your Blood AMEN💓💗💕💞❤💖
A promise of eternal life
Jesus promised those who hear his words and believe on the Father, that they will have everlasting life, eternal life, as it is written:
“Truly, truly, I say to you, He that hears my word, and believes on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death to life.” (John 5:24)
To whom did Jesus promise that?
To those who hear his “word, and believe on” God the Father, who sent Jesus to this World. Not to others.
It is said on this commentary:
“We should feel the happiest beings in the world for this fact, can you imagine worshiping God for an eternity? Glory to God!”
I think that should be impossible for us to imagine, now and here: “Worshiping God for an eternity”?
I agree that we should feel the happiest beings in Heaven in the presence of God, with Jesus, after having being changed into incorruptible beings, with glorified bodies and souls, as Jesus already is.
Before worshiping God for all eternity, we must be truly converted to God, having learnt to worship Him here in Spirit and in truth.
We need to resist here; and live and remain faithful to Him, knowing that:
“Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him;
if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us;
if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.”
2 Timothy 2:11-13
