The Truth about Adversity

“They encouraged them to continue in the faith, reminding them that we must suffer many hardships to enter the Kingdom of God.”
—Acts 14:22

Without question, the greatest life there is to live is the Christian life. Why? Because God takes a life that was empty, aimless, and, worst of all, headed to a certain judgment and turns it around and transforms it. He forgives us of all our sin. And if that wasn’t enough, He places the righteousness of Christ into our spiritual bank account.


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


He removes all our guilt, fills the void in our lives, and literally takes residence inside of us. And most importantly, He changes our eternal address from a place called Hell to a place called Heaven.

While it’s true that God removes a lot of problems we once had, a new set of problems replaces them. Because the day we put our trust in Jesus Christ, we enter into a battle. That is why the apostle Paul said, “Endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ” (2 Timothy 2:3 NKJV).

The problem is that some have believed in what we might describe as a watered-down gospel, one that promises forgiveness but rarely tells people of the need to repent of their sins, one that promises peace but never warns of persecution, one that says God wants us to be healthy and wealthy and never have any problems to speak of. But that isn’t the gospel of the New Testament. We can’t take a vacation from human suffering and tragedy.

I am not suggesting that God wants us to be sick, poor, and miserable. I am not even saying that God doesn’t want us to be happy, because I believe happiness will come as we truly follow the Lord. But it’s a fringe benefit. The essence of the Christian life is knowing God and walking with Him. And God, despite the worst tragedy, can bring good out of bad.
