We have entered into the suffering of Jesus Christ to the Glory of God. We suffer that we might enter the fullness of God. The joy of serving God comes when we are obedient. Baptism is an act of obedience; Holy Communion is an action of your faith. II Timothy 3:12
"Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." Our pain is the devil's pleasure. What the devil uses to hurt us, God uses it to help us. The Love of Christ constrains us to maintain. We must have a desire to please God. Jesus said, "Take up your cross and bear it daily." You don't get to choose your cross, it is chosen for you. The joy of following Christ is priceless. When you suffer for Christ, God will grant you suffering patience. Patience will help you endure your midnight hour without getting angry or upset. Waiting patience is necessary for endurance. This is when you learn to pray and trust God. Stand stedfast in your faith. Don't let anything turn you around.
