Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life. NIV
The Message paraphrases this part of the verse, “Don’t quit, even if it costs you your life. Stay there believing.” MSG
Whatever comes, whatever trials you must endure, whatever or whomever tries to rob you of your joy … be faithful!
That’s what I’ll think about today.
