Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

OCTOBER 29

 

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed:

we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus2. Cor. 4:8-10.

 

 Those who joyfully endure for the Lord’s sake, the Truth’s sake, the greatest shame, the greatest ignominy, the greatest trials, the greatest persecutions in this present life, and thus have experiences most like those of the Master and Pattern, we may be sure will in proportion to their faithfulness manifested in such sacrifices have a future great reward—as the Apostle has declared, “Star differeth from star in glory”.
