Expect To Suffer
2 Timothy 3:12 (KJV) Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
Living spiritually aligned with God allows a man to be a “yes” man with God. This position is an eternal alignment with God through the salvation of his soul. God tells us here, and in several other verses, those who choose to live in spiritual agreement with God should expect to face persecution and trials. Why? Because the god of this world is set to oppose God.
Just as Jesus Christ suffered in His short tenure on this earth, we, too, as sincere professing Christians, will face troubles and trials. Do not expect to find living easy or comfortable as you serve and savor God. However, God promises that He will be with us every step of the way. Even better, God promises to make a place for us, a mansion, in the eternal realm.
Suffering for God is expected as we sojourn in this world, but our misery is remedied forever in eternity, and we will enjoy sweet fellowship with God forever.
