Let me encourage you today to persevere in spite of troubles and trials.

God will bring victory to his faithful followers and judge those who persecute

them. God promises to reward our faith by giving us his power and helping us

bear persecution. Suffering for our faith will strengthen us to serve Christ and

we must stay faithful to him. Christ will return and bring total victory to all

who trust in him. If we are ready, we need not be concerned about when he

will return. Do not fear! It is our Father's good pleasure to give us the Kingdom of

God.  We should stand firm in the face of adversary and persecution and

love those who don't know the truth or Jesus as His faithful witness.

A people or person without a country, church, family or friends can find a eternal home and Kingdom in Christ.
