Suffering Here, Blessed There
Job 23:10; Philippians 1:29; 3:8; Colossians 1:24; 1 Peter 1:7

If here we have to suffer for Christ’s sake, there we shall be blessed. It is through a cross and through afflictions that we are tried, like gold in the fire, by the Builder who formed the world out of nothing. Blessed then shall we be, if we persevere in that which is good, even to the end.
