What we believe and teach: Persecutions

What we believe and teach: Persecutions

holy-bibleJesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, said that if they persecuted Him, they will also persecute us His disciples. Therefore we were called to suffer for His name’s sake. In other words, we were called to partake of Christ’s sufferings. However we are not ashamed to suffer as a Christian, rather we praise God that we bear that name. We are fully persuaded that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which will be revealed in us on the day of Christ. So we endure patiently our sufferings and we commit our souls to our faithful Creator in doing good, because when Christ appears, then we also will appear with Him in glory, and we will be glad with exceeding joy; while those who trouble us will be repaid with tribulation.

Sufferings are useful because suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. That’s why we consider it pure joy, when we face various trials for the Lord’s sake. We must through many tribulations enter the Kingdom of God. (Giacinto Butindaro, from http://www.the-new-way.org/wwbat/index.html)
