Children of God are encouraged to endure their trials and temptations for the sake of receiving eternal reward in heaven. Believers must stay close to God with unwavering faith to receive incorruptible crown of glory on the last day. It is written, “In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:6-7).
Every child of God ought to endure whatever challenge of faith that he/she may face since the effort would be rewarded in heaven. God will crown Christians who endure persecutions and trials of faith on the last days. Christ has warned believers to not assume that Christianity would be easy. Christianity would not always come with “bread-and-butter” experience. The religion would come with its own challenge of persecution. Anti gospel people will attack Christians and persecute them for their faith. Some Christians would be persecuted to death! However, any Christian who endure faith to the end will be rewarded.
It is important that every Christian stand firm in faith and endure persecution to receive God’s priceless eternal reward in heaven.
Dear God, please keep me in faith, and let me remain consistent with your holiness standard. Help me to endure persecution. Empower me through your Holy Spirit to stand firm against trials and temptations so that I can make it to your kingdom. Let me qualify to hear your voice “Weldon and welcome my good servant.” For in the name of Jesus Christ I have prayed. Amen.
