Daily Courage – June 29


from Day by Day with the Persecuted Church
 

If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 

(1 Peter 4:14)

Nicolae Gheorghita

Christ exhorts us to take up our cross. That is not easy. We do not want to suffer. But we need to realize that suffering is a part of our walk with God. If we only believe in God with our heads and not with our actions and deeds, we will not suffer. Only when we live up to God’s standards will we face hardships. But what does the Bible teach us? “If you are insulted because of the name of Christ you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.”

I already mentioned that I am translating Christian books from English into our own language. From the moment I started doing this I realized that sooner or later the police would arrest me for this. My wife and I had talked about the consequences. We realized that I could be put in prison and beaten for my work, that she could be left alone to raise our children. However, we decided that I should continue to serve the Lord in this way. He would take care whatever might befall us. I thank God for my wife and children. God has always been faithful. You know God not only exhorts us to take up our cross – He bears it with us. He bears the heavy part … I am just walking along. Let us not look at the price and pain only. Let us look to Christ. He bore the cross and went all the way. What a love. What a joy to be found worthy to suffer with Him. He is worthy.

Nicolae Gheorghita is from Romania. He became well-known as one of pastors of the largest Baptist Churches in Europe. Despite his status, his messages are characterized by their simplicity and servitude.
