You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

When God sees us engaged in one of life’s difficult battles, He doesn’t want us to give up. He is the Ruling Banker of the Universe and is ready and waiting to help us win. God doesn’t intend for us to lose and be destroyed by the storms in our life. He may not remove us from them immediately. In fact, we may be required to walk through some very difficult places. But we can be assured He will walk with us through every adversity. It is during these times of distress and affliction that we draw closer to Him. In suffering, we are privileged to be given a minute glimpse of Christ’s own pain and acquire a greater appreciation of His unequalled sacrifice when He died for us. Christ took up His cross when He was crucified, dying a torturous death that we might have eternal life. Each of us will, in reality, also have a cross to bear. It may be the cross of illness or of losing a loved one. It may be a financial cross or one of personal sacrifice. Will we be able to pick up ‘our’ cross and still follow Him? Are we able to live with misfortune in our life and still love the One who gave His life for us? Or will we blame Christ for the suffering that comes our way and turn our back on Him?
