Today is Sunday, 10 April in the year 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of 1 Peter 5:10..
And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.1 Peter 5:10.
It is quite unfortunate and so sad how the modern day preachers have conditioned the mind of their congregation to believe that because they accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour; they are no longer to see suffering.
But our bible verse for today helps us to understand that we are going to suffer a little while; before being restored, confirmed, strenghtened and established as a child of God.
The word I watch most in the above bible verse is comfirmed.
Hence, suffering is basic and a necessity for being confirmed as a true Christian.
Which means, trying to rule suffering out of your life, when you are following Christ; will never allow you to be confirmed as true Christian.
In the Old Testament we see the story of the richest man of his time, Job,
This man lost everything he had in life including his children in just one day. Job 1:13-22.
But when we go to the scriptural text where he was restored; we find out that he was given double of all that he lost. Jo 42:7-17.
Beloved, if you truly want to be a confirmed Christian; you must accept the suffering that comes your way for this little while.
