Why Suffering???

Written by Victor Stanley Jr.

For the next three days I will discuss three aspects of suffering that are often misunderstood, and thus make it difficult for the Christian to endure suffering as instructed in scripture. Romans 5 says this:

[1] Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. [2] Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. [3] Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, [4] and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, [5] and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. (Romans 5:1-5 ESV)

I will address God’s love, God’s timing, and the Christian Life as they relate to suffering. Please give your feedback, thoughts, criticisms, etc. It is much appreciated.
