Our Sufferings

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Have the Goodie read to you!)

Our Sufferings are God’s Gift to Us:

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).

Our Sufferings are Our Appointment:

No man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereto (I Thessalonians 3:3).

Our Sufferings are A Spiritual Fruit:

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering … (Galatians 5:22).

Spiritual fruit does not include “deliverance”; quite the contrary, it produces God’s attribute of endurance or long-suffering in the life of the believer.
