To Life through Hardships (Matthew 24:7-8)

Koichi Kobashi, NCCJ Moderator

Walking toward the cross, Jesus spoke not only about his suffering but also the troubles that await those who follow him.


War, famines, earthquakes, lawlessness will pervade, and love will grow cold.
And those who live by faith to the Lord will be hated by all the people.


"But this is the beginning of the birth pangs." The birth pangs we should undertake so that the world of sin would change to the world of life.


So be aware not to be confused. Do not lose your head or despair, but "Endure to the end."

It's not to be patient and overlook, but to take the sufferings squarely and to prepare with calm, head for the life helping one another.


We, walking in Lent toward Easter, are also facing the troubles of famines, earthquakes, hostility, war, and difficulties of the mission.


But we don't lose hearts, never give up, but take every one of these squarely, prepare with calm, advance step by step helping one another. The hardships we suffer is the birth pangs for the world to rise again.
