There will be suffering in this life. Paul addresses this right off the bat in his last letter to Timothy. He doesn’t just call Timothy to endure suffering, but to share in suffering for the gospel.
Am I the only one who thinks this is weird?
Sharing in suffering suggests that we have the choice to partake in it our not. If we were all honest with each other I think most people would rather be comfortable then in suffering. After all, we live in a culture that’s centered around comfort.
So, are we called to suffer?
If so, what does that look like in our context?
We’ll talk about it Thursday night! See you there!
