5 Reasons We Suffer...Printable Copy

1 Peter 4:16
New International Version (NIV)

16 However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.


1) Personally to Develop Faith   James 1:2-4

2) To Expose Wrong  1 Corinthians 11:30, James 5:13-16

3) To Learn Obedience  Hebrews 5:8, Psalms 119:67, 71, 75

4) To Cultivate Humility  2 Corinthians 12:7

5) To Glorify God  1 Peter 4:16

Now there are many reasons why we suffer.  If we can look at these reasons like those outlined here, we will not be focused on wrong, but on God!  Don't Focus on your suffering, focus on God who helps you through it!

Amen and Amen
