Joy in Suffering
As you pursue the gospel, your perspective changes. How many of you see people who identify as believers in Jesus and yet get just as worked up with hard circumstances as everyone else? How many of you see people who have just as hard a time with suffering as anyone else? Do you find this to be true of you? You can believe that Jesus is the Christ, that he died for you and rose from the dead and still not see things differently than other people. It is only when this belief translates to a genuine pursuit of the gospel that your perspective begins to change.
