Hello dear friends, welcome to our site in the name of Jesus Christ. Today we will look at Joy in Suffering in the Bible. If you like today’s post then definitely comment and share.
Friends, we should rejoice in our suffering. Because if we look at Paul, we will see that he tells us to rejoice always and he does not hesitate to write this again and again (Philippians 4:4).
And if we look at his life, we can see that he is enjoying spending days in prison and encouraging others to enjoy. Friends, in the same way, we should rejoice because we have hope and the Bible says The hope of the righteous will be joy (Proverbs 10:28).
Generally, if we look at the world, we will see that people do not have peace of mind despite having everything, but Paul even when he was in prison had joy in his heart even in the suffering, the same joy will be in our hearts and it will be given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ. He says He loves us so much that He will give us His own joy if we obey His commandments (John 15:9-11).
So friends, let us rejoice in every suffering. Because This day is the creation of the Lord and by this, we bring the joy of Jesus into our hearts.
Let us now look at more Bible scriptures below that will encourage us to rejoice in our suffering days.
