29:For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ, you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake.
Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You that I have been called out of darkness into Your glorious light, by faith in Christ’s finished work at Calvary which alone paid for my sins.
I also thank You that as part of Christ’s Body, I am given the privilege of suffering for His sake.
As I travel through a world that is hostile to Your grace and shows contempt for the precious sacrifice of Your dearly beloved Son and my Saviour, I pray You would draw me ever closer to Christ.
May I rejoice in the trials I am called upon to face in this fleeting life, knowing that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which will be one day be revealed in me.
Praise His holy name, Amen . Halleluyah
