Turning Suffering Into Blessing

This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God. For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him, Philippians 1:28-29


How do you handle adversity? Are you brave or a whiner or something else? Paul writes that people are watching us. When we stand united and unafraid as Christians they see that we have something special and they do not. This is why God often allows suffering for Christians—so that we have the opportunity to give testimony to the power of Jesus in our lives. It is not for us to seek out suffering, but if God allows it, then use your suffering as a platform to let others see the joy and the power of Jesus living within you. Don’t waste such powerful opportunities to let others see Jesus.
