Is Suffering Your Gift?

For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake . . .

Is suffering your gift? If you’ve been given faith in Jesus, Philippians 1:29 says that suffering comes along with it.

Do you say that to yourself? “Suffering is a gift from God.” Do you teach it to your children like this Chinese pastor?

Or do you not believe that verse?
