Suffering in Jesus Christ

Post  Waqar Daniel on Sun 09 Mar 2008, 3:00 pm

What do we mean by suffering in Jesus Christ? Suffering is also one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit but what does this suffering mean?

Do we have to suffer physically - beaten, living in poverty, dismayed? Many early evangelists took suffering to be a part of real worship and lived in poverty. Although suffering does not mean to live in poverty.

Suffering in Jesus is both physical and spiritual. When we accept Jesus as our LORD and Savior, we remove our old clothes (sinful lives) and God gives us a new spirit and heart and we are clothed in and with Holy Spirit.

We suffer because of worldly passions, because in Christ, we serve Heavenly Father through Jesus and not the god (worldly passions) of this world. We are in continuous struggle to keep our souls away from sin. We struggle to overcome our desires, we try to overcome sin, we try to overcome satan and all his schemes and plans. This is the struggle we go through and this is why we suffer. Suffering strengthens through and disciplines us to walk in God.

God bless you all
