"I feel I have a divine mandate to go and tell the people of this world that it is possible to be strong in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are in training for the tribulation, but more than sixty percent of the Body of Christ across the world has already entered into the tribulation. There is no way to escape it. We are next." Corrie Ten Boom

Why Do They Call it Good Friday?
Jesus knew that the sufferings he would experience on this earth would pale in comparison to the glory of redeeming the children of God, for the sole purpose of it being the Father's will to show them his kindness for all eternity.

How Being a Slave Gave Me Value. A politically incorrect blog.
"The translation of doulos by 'servant' rather than 'slave' [led] to the total effacement of its ancient significance (1965: 319).

This is possible because the believer is joined to Christ as a genuine member of His very body (Jn 14:20; 1 Cor 12:13).

They were refugees in every sense of the word, yet they lived in confident knowledge that the King of Kings was their father and protector.
