Living a Christian life is hard.
I’ve always known that being a Christian doesn’t come easy. God never promised an easy life just because we decided to follow him. Often times life is harder because we’re living the Christian life. We will get persecuted for our faith; whether this means not being the most popular kid in school, not being invited to parties, being left out or losing friends (etc.). Being persecuted doesn’t mean you’ll be hit over the head with a rock for being a Christian, but rather we will experience rejection from other people, temptations and hard trials. But God promises to be with us every step of the way. A Christian life is a hard one, but just because I choose to follow God, doesn’t mean I choose the easy route. Eternal life will be far better than life here on earth..and I’m so proud to call myself a follower of Christ. I will never look down upon it. I will always stand for him, even in the toughest of times. Just because my life isn’t going the way I want it to right now, doesn’t mean I should give up…this is what the Christian life is about…living a life for God in the hard times, not the easy.
