Suffering for Being a Christian

12 Dear friends, don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you. 13 Instead, be very glad—for these trials make you partners with Christ in his suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing his glory when it is revealed to all the world.

14 So be happy when you are insulted for being a Christian,for then the glorious Spirit of God rests upon you. 15 If you suffer, however, it must not be for murder, stealing, making trouble, or prying into other people’s affairs. 16 But it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being called by his name!17  For the time has come for judgment, and it must begin with God’s household. And if judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God’s Good News18 And also,

“If the righteous are barely saved,

what will happen to godless sinners?”

19 So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Love in Christ Pat

    For some dumb reason some of today’s Christians feel that they should not have to suffer. We are part of a new and improved “Name It & Claim It” society. I seriously doubt if many of these Christians could endure the types of persecutions and sufferings from days of old. They just barely make it through today’s version of suffering. Shameful.

    I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly
    in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any
    tips to help fix this issue?
