To be a disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ we must be willing to follow God's will no matter what. We must understand that our lives are not our own and we may be called to suffer for Christ's sake. This is not easy but it is a clear assurance to us that if we suffer like Christ, we will raise from the dead to be with Him forevermore

Without the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ, no man can stand before a holy God.
