Daily Courage - April 8

 
from Day by Day with the Persecuted Church

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are - yet was without sin. (Hebrews 4:15)

Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore. (Hebrews 13:13)

Remarkable Remarks-Victorious Under Pressure

Chinese Evangelist writing from prison:  "I am not afraid of being looked down upon by people, because, when I look up I see the smiling face of God.

George MacDonald: "No man ever sank under the burden of the day. It is when tomorrow's burdens are added to the burden of the day, that the weight is more than a man can bear."

John Trapp:  "God has one Son without sin, but none without sorrows."

Anonymous: "Persecution for Christ's sake is not a mark of defeat, but of victory."

Wong Ming Dao: "Stand firm in your faith, live the Christian life you confess; God can use you wherever you are."
