Endure

“Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.” -2 Timothy 3:12

Following Christ does not guarantee safety.
Following Christ does not guarantee happiness.

Following Christ guarantees danger.
Following Christ guarantees suffering.
Following Christ guarantees persecution.
Following Christ guarantees attacks.
Following Christ guarantees a constant battle.
Following Christ guarantees struggles.
Following Christ guarantees a fight.

But following Christ also guarantees salvation.
Following Christ guarantees forgiveness.
Following Christ guarantees redemption.
Following Christ guarantees hope.
Following Christ guarantees peace.
Following Christ guarantees joy.
Following Christ guarantees purpose.
Following Christ guarantees everlasting life.
Following Christ guarantees truth.
Following Christ guarantees love.
Following Christ guarantees His strength in our weakness.
Following Christ guarantees we will never be alone.
Following Christ guarantees He will forever hold us by the hand.

Following Christ is costly, but it is the only way.

“So I am willing to endure anything if it will bring salvation and eternal glory in Christ Jesus to those God has chosen.” -2 Timothy 2:10

Am I willing?
