《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” they said.” (Act 14:22)
Meditation one: Why is it so difficult to walk on the path of the Kingdom of God? For it is a narrow gate and those who find it are few (Mat 7:14); yet it is the only way to eternal life. For this reason we must trust in the Lord (Luke 13:24) and strive to enter through the narrow door. Having the Lord to accompany you through the heavenly path, there is not fear.
Meditation two: Do people have to go through harsh time in order to enter the Kingdom of God? No, it is not! But God, through suffering, let us experience God’s presence, polishing, shaping, so that we may take part in the work in the Kingdom of God. Remember, the hardships that God allows are all good for us.
Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You for Your promise in Christ. Jesus said, ” In the world you have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” No matter how corrupt, miserable, and sinister the environment is, I know that You will not leave me alone as an orphan, and I am confident that You will be with me.” I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus. Amen!
