1 Peter 2:19 ‘God will bless you for this if you endure the pain of undeserved suffering because you are conscious of his will.’
Suffering may often be felt as punishment, that is not for us to decide. Exposing yourself unreservedly to the will of God, shall expose you to suffering. Whether this is the suffering of others or your own. You may reason, “But I really just want peace, safety and protection.” That statement carries a key, “But I …” Part of the calling of Christ is giving up the ‘I’. There is the most amazing uncharted territory for you to explore when giving up the ‘I’, a space in which you take a step of faith into service for God. “But why should I invite suffering and sacrifice?” Jesus did and opened the door of salvation. Romans 12:1 ‘Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God–this is your true and proper worship.’ Bless you.
