Topic: SUFFERING IS JUST FOR A WHILE 1

Bible Reading: 1 Peter 5:10

📖10….”But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.”

Message:

🔥Suffering in Christianity is real. Even though it varies from one believer to another in different magnitudes, it is certain that those that trust in Jesus suffer persecutions. Christians shouldn’t expect their salvation to eliminate pain and heartache while still on the side of carrying the Cross. While Jesus carried the Cross of sins for humanity, he suffered untold persecution and pains. But he endured them. Eternal salvation means that suffering will one day come to an end, and such believers that keep their faith till the end, will receive everlasting bliss and joy.

🔥🔥According to 1 Peter 5:10, all persevering Christians will be perfected, established, strengthened and settled, once they overcome their for a short while sufferings. This should gladden the heart of discouraged pilgrims, that there will be sunshine after the thunder and tempests. What makes some Christians to suffer for a longer period of time is that, they don’t believe God is what He says He is, and will do what He says He will do…Num 23:19. In Eccles 3:11, God makes all things beautiful at His time. We need to trust Him at all times, because every time is His time.

🔥🔥🔥If it is true that God is always set to do us good at all times, why do some believers suffer longer than others? Because of faint faith. But there is an antidote to suffering which the Lord promulgated in Isaiah 43:18 which says, we shouldn’t remember former and old things. It is what man remembers that brings him sorrow. God remembers only our weaknesses. But when he does, he strengthens us according to Isaiah 40:29. But man remembers his past sins, and by them withdraws from worshipping God. Beloveth, if only you can remember the mercies of God, your sufferings will last for a short while.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

🙏O Lord, remember me for good, by reducing the duration of my suffering when persecuted, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏Heavenly Father, by your arrangement, have me established and settled after the pains and sorrows of Christian sufferings, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏🙏Dear Lord, enable me to forget my past persecutions and tempests, so I may look up to your promised new things for me, in Jesus’ name.
