Philippians 1:29



"For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but to suffer for him."

We often love the "perks" of being a follower of Christ, but the suffering part, we aren't fans of it. I mean, who would be?

But the fact that we follow Jesus, can see how he wants the world to be yet we are surrounded by a sinful and fallen world is enough, if we really pay attention, to see how much we suffer.

The goal is to understand that we will suffer for Christ, but not to the point of depression.

Remember, that in our suffering we are building up and that we have a hope that no one else has.
