1 Corinthians 15:30 (KJB) And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?
This is an interesting question the Apostle Paul posed. The context of his asking concerned the daily unrelenting persecution he faced. Why on earth would any person subject themselves to such continual harassment? Especially if this harassment was literally hour upon hour as Paul was inspired to word it.
The answer is simple because Jesus Chris arose from the dead.
Knowing this, that Jesus Christ arose the third day, any child of God can and will face such anguishing persecution and trials because God has been raised from the dead, as so have they risen from being spiritually dead to being alive in Christ.
What does being raised from the dead mean in the life of a child of God? It means that Jesus Christ made it possible for a child of God to be alive in Christ and above the penalty of death and alive forever in eternal life in Christ.
