Luke 21:19 ” By standing firm you will gain life.”

Jesus made it crystal clear throughout the Gospels…”All men will hate you because of Me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.” (Matthew 10:22, Mark 13:13, John 15:21) When you give your life to Jesus you suddenly have a target on your back & are open to the world’s ridicule, mockery, insults, & contempt. Sure, you can remain quiet & secretive, hiding your confession of faith under a barrel so to speak…but you become utterly useless in Kingdom work. Or you can stand strong in your belief, persevering patiently & suffering well…never surrendering or succumbing under the trials you face. Jesus never promised we’d have a smooth, trouble-free life as a Believer…quite the opposite! But He did promise He’d be right beside us to the end.
