Today's Verse : Philippians 1:29

For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him but also to suffer for him. — Philippians 1:29

Thought

When we read the book of Acts, we find the disciples overjoyed at suffering "for the sake of the name." Since Jesus has already victoriously passed through that kind of ordeal, we should consider it a privilege to share in his sufferings, not just a hardship. The truth of our commitment is often best shown to the skeptical when we are "under fire." So let's keep our character when under attack and rejoice because we've seen in Jesus what happens when God's children are faithful even at the cost of their lives.

Prayer

What a precious name you have given to your son, O Lord. May it be exalted in all the earth and throughout all the heavens until every heart knows that he is truly Lord. In Jesus name, and for his glory, I pray. Amen.
