“Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.” 2 Timothy 2:10 (NIV)
Apostle Paul was chained in prison and suffered like a criminal because of the gospel. It was not important for him to be known. His identification falls under the sovereignty of God. Paul was so sure of God’s purpose. He was willing to suffer for others to see that salvation is realized.
Ang bawat tagumpay ay may kaakibat na sipag, pagod at determinasyon sa pagharap sa bawat pagsubok ng buhay. “Success seems to be connected to action. Successful men keep moving. They may make mistakes, but they don’t quit.” May kasabihang, “Ang elepante ay pwedeng langgamin, ngunit ang Ianggam ay hindi pwedeng elepantehin.” Ibig sabihin lamang na ang bawat pagsubok ay hindi dinadaan sa lakas upang magtagumpay, kung hindi sa pagpupunyagi ng isang tao na tanawin ang pag-asa sa kabila ng pagsubok na kanilang hinaharap.
It is tiring yet advancing, so let us go through and overcome every challenge of life.
