So yes, the title is a little deceptive, but in essence we as “True Christians” need to be ready to be “Cry Babies” if we have the expectation of reaping the JOY’S of Heaven.
Life is and should be tough for the elect of Christ. If you are cruising through it then Satan does not recognize you as a true believer and you need to check your faith and salvation. If you are constantly hitting speed bumps HARD, (attacks from all sides it may seem) then you are working for the kingdom and likely on the right path. That path is full of tears and heartache but the reward is worth it all.
Los que sembraron con lágrimas, con regocijo segarán. (RVR 1960)
