When it comes to suffering, Paul calls us to forsake pity parties and glorify God. We can remember that Jesus shines through us, that our weaknesses glorify God, that we may be down but never out, and that our sufferings may bring eternal life to others.
2 Corinthians 4:5-12
Down but Not Out!
A Christian need never suffer. At least that’s what some preachers might tell you. However, that is not the message of scripture. Jesus said, “If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also” (John 15:20). We should expect no better treatment than that
