You, my reader, have no doubt suffered at times great sorrow, such as loss of a beloved, severe illness, or misunderstandings. However, if a true Christian, you have courageously endured.This helps to make you a real disciple of the Lord who, amidst oppressive pain, forgave his tormentors, and promised paradise to his followers. His heroism defines the kingship of Jesus: not as one who rules but serves,not a taker but a giver, not an enforcer but a lover. He calls us to the same king or gueenship. Today completes our church year built on a rule of compassion. By our working for the same goal as Jesus, we can hear his words: “Today you will be with me in paradise”.
