2 Timothy 2:11-13 (NET) This saying is trustworthy: If we died with him, we will also live with him. If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we deny him, he will also deny us. If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, since he cannot deny himself.

Hiroshi observed that Mr. Jacob had such integrity that he was willing to suffer for his convictions. There was something that drove him that was beyond what this world had to offer. As Hiroshi began to find out more about Christianity, he realized that there had been some Christian missionaries that visited his country, but many of them were persecuted and killed. He also observed that the missionaries kept coming in spite of the fact that they knew they were going to be killed. Hiroshi observed that Mr. Jacob had that same heart that did not consider life as precious as his convictions. He was now not just interested in knowing about Christianity, he now wanted to know what it was that these Christians understood.

The reason why the apostles were willing to suffer for Christ, and most of them were martyred, was because they lived by faith and not by sight. Their lives were controlled and regulated by what they believed.

The reason why the apostles were not going to allow anything to hinder them from pleasing the Lord was that they understood what lay ahead. They were not even going to allow the fear of death to make them displease their Lord. They knew they had a reward, and their reward was very great.

When a student goes through a lot of stress studying because he wants to get a degree, the life he lives while studying is proof that he believes he would be awarded a degree if he successfully completes the program. What we expect from the Lord is eternal, and more valuable than anything our minds can fully understand now (John 3:2). if we truly believe this, it would show in the way we live.

Go into today remembering that true faith would always produce faithfulness. Think more about your eternity because you now have eternal life.
—SD Abraham
