“And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.”
When people go through great difficulty, sometimes they say they’re losing their religion.
I would say that’s good. Lose your religion and then replace it with a relationship with God, because the faith that cannot be tested is a faith that cannot be trusted.
If your faith can’t stand a test, then maybe it isn’t real faith. The faith of real Christians will grow stronger through hardship. It won’t get weaker because of it.
The reality is that if you live a godly life, then you will suffer in some way. The Bible tells us that “everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12 NLT).
