Title: Suffering
Post by: phillip on January 31, 2008, 10:28:54 PM
One of my favorite verses is I Peter 4:16 which says, "Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf."

Not a nice topic for modern day Christians to think about. Suffering is a taboo. Yet from the scriptures it is clear that it is part of our walk on earth. We are called to suffer too. An author wanted to publish a book LOSING, SUFFERING, SACRIFICING AND DYING. People around said it was a very bad bad topic or title. Jesus our LORD told us to deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow him!  There is no short cut! We are to share in the sufferings of Christ.
