Suffering for Jesus
“Suffering for Jesus Acts 9:14-16”
Suffering for Jesus, is really worth it all, as He died for all of Our Sins, and He shed His blood for us! And, the stripes He bore, just think about it for a few minutes.
Paul’s conversation and salvation meant only a commission to preach the gospel, but also called to suffer for Christ Jesus. Paul was told from the beginning that he must undergo much suffering for the cause of Christ.
In Christ’s Kingdom, suffering for his sake is a sign of God’s highest favor. Acts 14:22, Matthew 5:11-12, Romans 8:17-18, 2 Timothy 2:12 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. And this means to a fruitful ministry, it results in abundance and plus rewards in Heaven.
Death must work in all believers in order for God’s life might follow from then into others. Romans 36, 37 Also Read Acts 14:22 We must go through many hardships, to enter the Kingdom of God.
(Strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remember true faith)
Through many hardships— Those who commit themselves to Christ’s Lordship and who will finally enter the Kingdom of Christ must suffer, many hardships along the way. Living in a Hostile World, they must engage in spiritual warfare against sin and satans power.
Ephesians 6:12, Romans 8:17, 2 Timothy 1:4-7, 2:12
Those who are faithful to Christ, his word and his righteousness ways can expect trouble in this world. John 16:35 Only the lukewarm for compromising believes will find peace and comfort from the world.
Revelation 5:14-17 The present evil world and false believers will remain adversaries to the gospel of Christ until the Lord overthrows the world’s evil system at His coming. Revelation 19:20
Meanwhile, the hope of the believers is stored up in Heaven. Col 1:5 and will be revealed in the last time. 1 Peter 1:5 There’s hope is not in this life nor in this world, but in the appearance of their Savior, to them away Himself. John 14:1-3, 1 John 3:2-3
Suffering For Jesus is something anyone should be glad to do. As Jesus suffered way much more than we can imagine.
Suffering in bad health, or something else in our lives, is really minor compared to what “Jesus DID for You and Me!”
