To show that GOD called us not to believe only but to suffer for His Name's sake and if we try to avoid or save ourselves from trials, persecutions and sufferings here on earth, we will not be saved (advance) in our spiritual life.
Are you called to suffer for Him?
Philippians 1:29 (Amplified Bible)
For you have been granted [the privilege] for Christ’s sake not only to believe in (adhere to, rely on, and trust in) Him, but also to suffer in His behalf.
