‘We also glory in our suffering, because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance character and character hope and hope does not put us to shame.’ Romans 5:3-4

When I think of the persecuted church, millions are already suffering, really suffering. So although I don’t want suffering, how dare I ask that. If my Christian brothers and sisters suffer, why should not I. I also want perseverance, character and hope. So I have to pray that I may glory in any suffering I may have. So difficult; God’s standards are high.
