“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us” (Rom. 8:18).
Our problem isn’t that we don’t understand suffering, it’s that we don’t understand the greatness of the glory which is to be revealed. If we did, our present trials, sufferings, and even persecutions would be welcomed as friends and not dreaded as enemies. May it be so!
