Apostle Grace Lubega
2 Timothy 1:8 (KJV): Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God…
When you are deeply anointed by God, it also follows that you will be deeply afflicted for the sake of the gospel. Some Christians forget this.
They admire the miracles and demonstrations of power and hunger for the portion of the anointing on another man’s life.
But the question is, are you ready to be a partaker of the afflictions of the gospel?
The anointing has a price to it and part of this price is ENDURANCE.
Be ready to pay the price. But in paying this price, remember that the grace is always greater than the price to be paid.
So, we are not of those who speak of a price without the grace to pay for it.
Like our theme scripture has revealed, you can only endure affliction according to the power of God. The Message version says, “We can only keep on going after all, by the power of God.” Hallelujah!
FURTHER STUDY: 2 Timothy 2:3, John 16:33
The anointing has a price to it and part of this price is ENDURANCE. Be ready to pay the price. But in paying this price, remember that the grace is always greater than the price to be paid.
PRAYER: My God I thank you for your Word. I am grateful for your strength and power that is constantly at work through me. It builds in me the convictions of fortitude and the ability to endure all things for the sake of the gospel. This gospel is my life and nothing can ever cause me to draw back because of your grace and power at work in me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
