  Meditation on Today's Gospel: Luke 21:12-19
Jesus tells his disciples that if they tolerate to the end they will gain their lives – they will see God's salvation and come into eternal life and happiness with God. Patience is more than human effort and determination. It is a supranational gift of the Holy Spirit which enables us to bear up under any test, attraction, and form of harassment. Patience is strengthened with hope – the paranormal declaration that we will see God face to face and come into all the promises he has made. Jesus is our supreme model and hero who endured the cross for our sake. "God shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). Jesus freely drops his blood for our sake and for our deliverance and he calls us to lay down our lives for one another and to take up our cross in like manner. Only love can defeat chauvinism, bigotry, hatred, and envy. God's love cleanses our hearts and minds of all that would divide and tear people separately. The truth is also necessary for overcoming evil and bad luck in the world. Satan deceives and sin blinds the heart and mind. Only God's truth can free us from error and sacred sightlessness. The gospel is God's word of truth and salvation. That is why Jesus tells his disciples to announce the gospel throughout the whole world (Mark 16:15), even in the midst of resistance and persecution. God may call some of us to be martyrs for our faith. But for most of us, our call is to be ‘waterless’ martyrs who bear evidence to the joy and power of the gospel in the midst of daily brave, disagreement, lure and adversities which come our way as we follow the Lord Jesus. What will pull towards you others to the truth and power of the gospel? When they see Christians loving their opponent, being joyful in anguish, patient in adversity, pardoning injuries, and showing comfort and sympathy to the hopeless and the helpless. Jesus tells us that we do not need to fear our adversaries. God will give us enough grace, strength, and wisdom to face any test and to answer any challenge to our faith. Are you ready to lay down your life for Christ and to bear witness to the joy and freedom of the gospel?
Forward this “Daily Thoughts” among your friends - and be a part of sharing His message, which Jesus asked to do each one of us!
