Word for the week

Some folks portray the Christian life as a bowl of cherries or bed of roses. "Come to Christ," they say. "Your troubles will be over." As a certain rental car advertisement once retorted, "Not exactly." Someone forgot to pit the cherries. Someone else didn't take the thorns off the roses.

Becoming a Christian does not suddenly remove all your problems. In fact, conversion to Christ can intensify those difficulties. Not everyone appreciates the followers of Jesus. Don't let this deter you. Christ will teach you how to cope with your problems. Christ will support you in the midst of your troubles. He will personally comfort you.

However, to experience this guidance and comfort in times of adversity, you must entrust yourself to God. Jesus Christ sets the pace. No one ever walked on this earth and endured more pain and suffering than He did. The Bible relates His response. "While being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously" (1 Peter 2:23). In the midst of His suffering, Jesus Christ trusted His Father for comfort and strength to cope.

This is what you need too. In the midst of your problems, turn to Christ. Entrust yourself to God. He is the "Father of mercies and the God of all comfort" (2 Corinthians 1:3).
