Faithful unto death

Written by Harrison Obeng Debrah.

"Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee the crown of life." (KJV) Rev. 2:10b

The early church suffered great persecution from both the Jews and the Roman government. These persecutions were meant to stop Christians from remaining faithful to God. Amidst these persecutions, and the ones yet to come, the Lord comforts Christian with the revelation to the church through the Apostle John.

In the same vein, Christians continue to suffer several forms of persecutions. Some people are coerced to join ungodly and corrupt practices at their work places, in schools, in our communities, from family and friends among others. These persecutions are darts thrown at us by the devil with the aim of causing us to slip off The Way. Jesus comforts us today that he knows our afflictions and poverty (denied needs). However, the good news is that He is much aware of these challenges we are going through and the ones yet to come.

Many so-called men of God present a contrary view. That Christians are not to go through difficult times and that the emergence of difficulties in life is as a result of ‘something supernatural’ that must be dealt with. In the passage, Christians are not promised a problem-free life but a victorious one over challenges. This means that our faithfulness must not be a nine-day wonder but a continuous daily effort. Those who remain faithful unto death will receive the crown of life. This crown of life is eternal and the things of this world cannot be compared to it. Beloved in Christ, be thou faithful unto the end and you shall receive the crown of life!
