Here is a blog post that I did 2 years ago and I wanted to share it for those who think that as Christians, we don’t have to suffer.
Today, I want to talk about the suffering Christians face as followers of Christ and how we can still find joy through the suffering.
While reading this blog post, I want you all to ask yourself this question: Am I willing to endure suffering for Christ?
What does it mean to Suffer for Christ?
Well, the word suffer comes from the Hebrew word Oni which means “misery” or “poverty”. To suffer for Christ is something that we as Christians talk about and preach about, but we never actually discuss because we feel that we already know what it means. But do we? In Philippians 1:29, the Apostle Paul says that as Christians, we will suffer for Christ because we have faith in Christ and Paul says that suffering for Christ is actually a gift from God because it’s in the suffering that He comforts us.
