Truth Treasure: This Life is Difficult

“Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.” Acts 14:22b

It can not get any clearer than that, can it? God promises tribulation here on earth. Knowing this, we shouldn’t be surprised or question Him when things go wrong. Never once does God promise us an “easy” life. But this is one of many passages stating the exact opposite. So next time you face an obstacle, just accept the fact life is hard sometimes.

Yet, note how this verse ends with “the kingdom of God.” If you are His disciple, heaven awaits you. The many tribulations we face here on earth should make us long for our real home. Remember, we’re just passing through.
