The Christian has this one great assurance from God — an assurance for victory — an assurance that is, unfortunately, often under-estimated and taken for granted…. However, to the one who has experienced rejections and betrayals in the hands of people, even the Church — to the one who knows what it means to be alone, helpless, and hopeless — this assurance is precious. Priceless. Worth fighting for. Worth sacrificing for. Definitely worth our lives and loyalty.
