For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
– Romans 8:18
You will suffer in this life. We live in a broken world, and as a result, we suffer. Jesus said, “In the world you will have tribulaiton.” That’s a promise. Not one of the Jesus promises we like to claim, but it’s a promise nonetheless. Though, maybe we should claim it because the whole of His pomise says, “In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Yes, suffering is a reality in a broken world. But the greater reality for the Christian is that we trust in He who overcame this world, and therefore we know that any suffering in this life will be immediately overshadowed by the glory of the next.
