When you think about suffering, is it easy for you to embrace it? Would you want to go through suffering? I don't think anyone does. However, I would guarantee that Christians would say they would love to have a greater relationship with Christ. What if that fellowship with Christ meant you had to suffer, would you still want a deeper relationship with Him?
This is just a poem that came after meditating on 2nd Corinthians 4:1-6
God took us from perishing and made us conquers
Once bound to sin, by faith living in victory
Hearts blinded to the gospel we thought was foolish
He shone in our hearts the light of the knowledge of His glory
Now triumphant in Christ
His light shines through us
No longer living with shame
But abounding with love from the life we gained
Renouncing everything that once identified us
Living now in liberty, because Christ abides in us
Born again as a child of God
Transforming from glory to glory by the Spirit of the LORD!
