Lessons for Us
Believers may experience suffering.
Dear friends, don’t be surprised when the fiery ordeal comes among you to test you, as if something unusual were happening to you.
I Peter 4:12
God does not measure success using worldly standards.
Pursuing things that do not last for eternity is a life fail.
For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of me and the gospel will save it. For what does it benefit someone to gain the whole world and yet lose his life?
Faithfulness is measured in every moment, but is determined at the end of life.
Be faithful to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.
Success is Living is understanding your hope in Christ.
Truly I tell you, among those born of women no one greater than John the Baptist has appeared, but the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
