Joshua 22:5 But Be Very Careful To Keep The Commandment And The Law That Moses The Servant Of The Lord Gave You: To Love The Lord Your God, To Walk In All His Ways, To Obey His Commands, To Hold Fast To Him And To Serve Him With All Your Heart And All Your Soul."
Just because we are in pain does not mean we are permitted by God to slack off. We are not permitted to slack off from keeping the commandments. We are not permitted to slack off from loving God with all our heart, all our soul, and all our might. We are not permitted to walk in any way other than the Lord’s way. We are not permitted to slack off from obeying God’s commands. We are not permitted to slack off from holding fast to Him and serving Him every moment. Being a person of Christ is never easy. Being a person of Christ when we are in pain is more difficult still. However, we have no excuse but to do what Christ wants us to do and be the person He wants us to be. If we will think long and hard, if we will observe, we will see how living as Christ wants us to live serves us better in pain than any other way of living. We must also remember Christ holds us closest when we struggle the most.
