God’s Forgotten Gift

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Let Clyde read the Goodie for you!)

Unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on Him, but also to suffer for His sake (Philippians 1:29).

Two gifts given to the believer are mentioned by Paul in Philippians 1:29. The first is “to believe on Him.” This is a glorious gift every believer has been given.

For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8).

God has dealt to every man the measure of faith (Romans 12:3).

There is also another gift from God mentioned by Paul in Philippians 1:29 that is equally as glorious. The second gift is “also to suffer for His sake.” Every believer has been given this gift from God as well. Indeed, suffering is God’s wonderful gift to us. Paul teaches us to embrace this second gift as well as we do the first!
