I pray to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that His Spirit covers you all with the faith and courage to carry out His will, so that you may receive the benefits of obeying an intelligent faith.
The Olympics are about to commence and the athletes, after having sacrificed hundreds of hours of intense training, will be submitted to their final tests. Only the best will take home the much-wanted gold medals.
This test is only a reflection of the many others we must all pass through in life. Regardless of the area, there will always be a FINAL TEST.
It is no different when it comes to the Kingdom of God. The proposal of the One who overcame death, hell and the devil is not to give the winners a medal to hang on the wall, but A CROWN OF PURE GOLD, like the SEAL of a WINNER, to reign with Him for all of eternity.
Yes!… He said:
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. Matthew 11.12
In other words, to be a WINNER AND HAVE THE RIGHT TO THE CROWN OF LIFE, YOU MUST SACRIFICE, NOT HUNDREDS OF HOURS, BUT ALL OF YOUR LIFE BY FAITH.
May the Holy Spirit open the minds of our readers so they may understand this proposal!
