“If we suffer, we shall also reign with Him;  If we deny Him, He also will deny us.” II Tim. 2:12


“A charge to keep I have,

A God to glorify;

A never-dying soul to save,

And fit it for the sky!-Unknown


Living the Christian Life as a true Believer, is not an easy task.  Sometimes we have the idea that just because we KNOW Jesus as our Savior, life should be a bed of roses and we should have no problems.  We of those that have lived the Believer’s life, know that “the bed of roses”, also contain many thorns!  The secret to getting through the thorny parts of life, is to remember the sweet times, the soft moments, the fragrance of knowing that the Almighty God is there with you…ALWAYS!

Jesus had his own “thorns” to deal with during His time here on earth…and NOT just the thorns they placed on His head.  He didn’t have a house to live in…He walked everywhere He went…He ate whatever was offered to Him.  The Government at the time was constantly after Him, trying to kill Him because of His ministry…His friends forsook Him in the end…even God The Father…HIS Father, turned His back on Him!  But Jesus never lost sight of the goal…TO SAVE US FROM OUR SINS!  Jesus saw the end of things…that’s what He kept in mind as He hung there between Heaven and earth, and died for our sins.


  Not an easy task…but WOW!  What a reward it will be!
