Suffering…

Even in our suffering, our lives as followers of Christ is still the most rewarding, because nothing surpasses the extreme amazing honor of knowing Christ & having His love fill our hearts!
.
Having His Spirit fill us & having the fruit of the Spirit, is something truly amazing & beyond comparison, it makes all ‘suffering’ far worth it!
.
It’s a reality that we will all have to suffer to some degree for Christ. But any amount of suffering is far far better than living a life void, empty, dead inside, hopeless, & worse of all,  separated for eternity from the love of God.
.
Even if we have to suffer here on earth, we are never alone & the Lord will give us strenght to make it through. Also, the Lord promises we will be rewarded one day for our faithfulness here in this life as well. And the Lord’s rewards are not just any rewards!
.
To know God is life! We really are nothing without God, & even though we may have to suffer now, everything we will ever need is found in Him.

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
