Suffering Righteously


Your life matters to God. He created you for His pleasure and desires to have you as His lasting joy. The conditions for His pleasure is satisfying His requirement for increasing His pleasure. If you deny God the pleasure of having your commitment, then He will deny you the pleasure of entering into the mansion He has prepared for those who love Him.

Your life will end. You will either die early or late, but you will die. It is appointed unto mankind once to die and then the judgment. The requirement for a noonday judgment and an entrance into heaven is having the Holy Spirit and your name written within the Lambs Book of Life. The requirement is found through repentance and believing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

After the arrest of John, Jesus went into Galilee and proclaimed the gospel of God. “The time is fulfilled,” He said, “and the kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe in the gospel!” – Mark 1:14-15

Repenting is not easy. Following Jesus is not easy, because whoever suffers in the flesh is done with sin (1 Peter 4:1). Suffering in the flesh through denial of your lustful cravings will reap for you an eternal reward in heaven. Do not let anyone deceive you. The wrath of God is coming on the children of disobedience.

Choose to suffer righteously, not as a busybody or because of sin, but the normal suffering that comes from walking right.
