Suffering is a normal part of following Jesus. Paul said, “For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him …” (Philippians 1:29). It was a consequence of being in Christ’s kingdom which imperial rulers considered a threat to their authority. Like many in the churches, John learned the grace of patient endurance through unjust, cruel and oppressive ill-treatment. It was a physical, psychological and spiritual sharing of Christ’s sufferings; but like Christ, the prospect of sharing in His glory sustained them (Romans 8:17; 1 Peter 5:1). It also created a personal bond for mutual encouragement with others who suffered (2 Corinthians 1:5-7).
*SHARING IN THE SUFFERINGS OF CHRIST JESUS MAKES YOU A PARTAKER IN HIS GLORY AS WELL!!!*
Prayer: *Sovereign Lord.Forgive me for my preoccupation with earthly troubles preventing me from seeing the glory ahead, which You have promised. Amen!!*
