1. Remembering Christ
Timothy 2:8-9 says, remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel, for which I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal.
But the word of God is not bound! Remembrance of Christ and His death at Golgotha needs to be the center piece through which we praise God in the hard times.
When we suffer, we can remember that He suffered, and His suffering gave us freedom!
This is one reason some leave the faith. They forgot what even brought them into God’s loving hand.
Praise be to God, our Almighty King that gave us the final sacrifice to atone for our sins!
