Suffering, Part 2

If I patiently endure suffering for what is wrong, there is no glory in it.

But…

If I patiently endure suffering for what is right (for having Christ in my life), than it is acceptable with God.

This is what Christ suffered for.

He did not suffer because of what He did wrong, for He did no wrong.

He suffered because He reflected the Father.

This is what being a partaker of Christ’s suffering is:

Suffering because of Christ in us.

This is the most weighty trust and the highest honor.

(1 Pet 4:12-16; 1 Pet 3:16-18; 1 Pet 2:20-25)
