Good Things Are Costly

By   •   November 12   •   Topics: ,

You should not expect the easy way, for if you do you are certainly destined for disappointment. Any person who knows the Bible knows that the Christian life is likened to an athletic contest or to warfare, and neither one is easy. Jesus warned His followers to count carefully the cost, and that certainly does not speak of an easy way. But there is no good thing that comes without cost.

The Christian life is the most satisfying, but only when we actually go all out and all the way. It is the Christian who tries to compromise who finds life miserable, for he has all the problems, without the fellowship that comes through surrender. For every trial and test, Christ supplies an abundance of grace with which to bear it, and in our weakness we are made strong.

What is grace and what does it do? Read Billy Graham’s answer.

Prayer for the day

Let me never look for the easy way when You, Lord Jesus, gave everything for me.

    Difficulties in life are inevitable. How we choose to handle them is our choice. Choose Christ.

  3. Elizabeth says:

    Thank you for the devotion. It’s life changing and an eye opener. We are not to look for an easy way because we are in a race, as the Word says in Hebrews 12 as well as other scriptures. The apostle Paul talks in the New Testament of running our races with endurance, without carrying any weight or sin that hinders us. Thank you, sir. May the Lord bless you and your family.
