If you have ever had the feeling that you just cannot go on, in any situation, and you are Christian, then you should read this to the end.
Jesus paid our sin debt, in full, so that we might have everlasting life in Heaven. But what about here, on this earth? I know there are many people suffering with afflictions which make life difficult every day. However, sometimes we find ourselves in situations where we want to just give up because we “just can’t go on any farther” with them. As Christians, this is a faith failure.
We need to understand that this is a fallen world and that the fate of the society of unbelievers is doomed. But we believers are still here, dealing with the fallen society, and we say “how long must I keep putting up with this?” Well, Jesus told us that we CAN live in the fallen world because He made it possible: “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) If Jesus has overcome the world and He is living inside us then we can overcome the world as well. We have the power of the Holy Spirit, The Enabler, to push us on and through troubling times. So don’t let yourselves get tangled up in worldly problems; together Jesus and you have already overcome the world.
