Good morning,Moments of rejoicing come to mind when you read Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. But for some they shiver at the idea of suffering, the question is why are we suffering? I know I have suffered at my hand of choice, meaning making my own choices instead of waiting and praying for Gods guidance. There are sufferings for Christ which is a part of the life of Christianity, but this is the seed that we see daily; people who confess to live a Christ filled life, but adverse to live His life of purity. In this case we create our own sufferings our children see the adverse demonstrations. Cursing and fighting, dope dealing, smoking and selling, having sex out of marriage, people, bad attitudes, making excuses to change, lying and scheming to get over on others. Just examples to get the minds thinking for Christ. Sex outside of marriage deadly for those dating… You may have done this all your life, but life in sin comes to a end. And God does not cover sin… He has no place in it.
Our way has never worked which is why we chose to give our lives to the savior. Controlling our lives when we say we live in Christ and living unholy is other reasons for unnecessary sufferings. These things we allow in our lives bring on stress and toxicity, causing sickness and sadness… Some of the tears were not for the suffering that belong to Christ but the suffering of our selfish nature.
Remembering purpose 19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God … Everyone has been a creature waiting to birth into the creation of God. While many are waiting today for the redemption of Christ in them we have to ask ourselves, who is waiting on me? For we are sons and daughters birthed out of the creature mentality, the corruptible is gone we’re filled with holiness so so where are we in Gods plan for greater Good?
God bless you
