One of the Most Important Verses in the Bible

Acts 14:22 is one of the most important verses in the Bible: “Strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, [Paul and Barnabas] were saying, ‘Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.’” We so often think that there is another pathway to the Celestial City than the one our Lord and Savior Himself walked – the pathway of suffering, tribulations, pain, struggle, affliction. Memorize this verse, hang it on your mirror, put it in your car’s dashboard, whatever it takes to keep its truth in front of you. And then go and do what Paul and Barnabas did to the saints in Lystra, Iconium, and Antioch – strengthen the disciples with this truth.
