John Chrysostom, one of the finest preachers in the early church, once declared, “Let the hope of the good things to come raise you up. For the true story of your testimony cannot be suppressed forever” (Homilies on the Gospel of St. Matthew, 34.1). Though we may face opposition and persecution now, we know that in the end all will be set right and the servants of Christ will be vindicated. Let this precious truth encourage you to stand firm for the Gospel.
