What the Bible says about suffering Jesus suffered and died for us on the cross, but God raised Him from the dead. Jesus Christ now sits at the right hand of God the Father, and He sees our suffering. He sees our life every day and knows exactly where we stand.
Suffering is a natural part of the human experience. It produces perseverance, character; and character, hope. Suffering produces endurance to follow in His steps. If you carry the spirit of Christ, you will suffer for Jesus. That’s comes with living the Christian life. God’s glory is more important than our own. If the Holy Spirit walks with us, the work we do will add to the eternal glory in Christ.
