The persecution, mockery, beatings, isolation, and attacks we may face for being advocates of the gospel, will never gain any comparison to the glory of what is to come on the day of the Resurrection, where we will receive new glorious bodies, free from infirmities and sin. It is because of this, we gladly go through all we go through, because we know that everything we face on this Earth is temporary. It neither adds nor removes to our eternal security in Christ. Our salvation remains our priority and we should strive to proclaim it, defend it, and be proud of it no matter what.
And we pray:
Dear God, I would like to use this moment to declare my faith in You and my resolve to abide in You no matter what. I am aware of what may come my way because I choose to align myself with You. I do not consider it any loss, the suffering I may endure on this Earth, as a result of my faith in You. I thank You, Lord, that I can be a partaker of this glorious future. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
