Called to Suffer

Updated: Feb 23

By Ruth Shalom

Suffering. Pain. Loss. These are all things we wish to avoid. As Christians we often pray for hurt to be removed and comfort to be restored. And God does answer our prayer in His time and according to His will.

But can suffering be our calling? Our way of life?

God warns us that by doing good, we will most likely undergo suffering. 1 Peter 2:21 says that Jesus is our example in this lifestyle. Christ suffered for no fault of His. And through His suffering, we are reconciled with God (1 Peter 3:18). We are to follow His example and consistently do good. This will probably cause a lot of suffering, but God will use our suffering to bless others. 

God is calling us to a life of suffering, a life of imitating Jesus and a life of blessing to others.
