Daily Words of Encouragement – October 3 – Fr Osita Eze
Crossless Christianity is no Christianity at all. Many deceitful preachers would try to make you understand that for the fact you are a follower of Christ, you should not experience suffering.
Child of God, we are following Christ, the Holy one who gave up His life for love of us. He suffered cruelty and was persecuted. He said that as they persecuted Him, so you shall be persecuted.
Beloved, this should not instill fear in you . He said fear not for I am with you till the end of time.
Many saints who made it in this life suffered. St Theresa of the child Jesus whom we celebrate today is a perfect example. She suffered for the love of God, for the missionaries and for the salvation of souls. As they all were victorious so shall you be victorious in Jesus name.
The Lord has given you the authority to tread upon serpent and over all the powers of the enemy and nothing shall hurt you. May the Lord bless you + Amen! Good morning and hope you slept well?
