Would You?

Would you become a member of a congregation if:

You must give up your highly prestigious position with all its wealth, power, and comfort?

Those in this congregation occupy the bottom rung socially?

They would constantly criticize you, not appreciating what you sacrificed for them?

And would you:

Believe the sacrifice well worth it?

Refuse to look back longingly to all you gave up?

Endure to the end?

If so,

Shake hands with Moses! You have a lot in common.

“By faith Moses . . . choosing rather to endure ill-treatment with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, considering the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt; for he was looking to the reward” (Hebrews 11:24-26).
