Daily Verse
March 9 - Time for Suffering

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” – Romans 8:18

Everything around us tells us that to be happy is to be without pain or suffering. But experience and conscience tells us that it is foolish to think we can escape suffering. It is not to be avoided at all costs, but to understood. No suffering this side of eternity is worthy to be compared to the eternal glory which the Bible says will “be revealed in us.”

As the saying goes, “either we will grow bitter, or better.” Suffering perfects us and teaches us to follow God rather than human desires and passions. Suffering brings us closer to Christ and His cross. This is not self-inflicted suffering, but that suffering that comes from living for Christ.

The Bible is clear that those who want to live godly lives will endure persecution. There is a general suffering that all must endure, but there is a suffering that the children of God endure. We must endure life here, knowing that our heavenly abode is more glorious than anything here on earth. If only we could live each day knowing that soon the time of suffering will end.
