The next time someone tells you #God wants you to be #healthy and #wealthy, ask yourself how health and wealthy were #Jesus Christ and His disciples?  Great sales pitch, right?  The Christian life is a struggle and the rewards do not get fully realized here and now.  The rights and privileges of wherever you live now cannot compare to what waits the Christian in Heaven.  How is your attitude and behavior?  Is it right and is it consistent?  Are we united with the rest of the Body of Christ?  Who or what are our adversaries as those who follow Christ?  What do attacks say about our status?  Can we ever see adversity as a privilege?  If I gave you a present, you would thank me.  Wouldn’t you?  God has given you some things that i know you haven’t thanked Him for yet.

Currently, we are suffering through threats of #CoronaVirus, #Locust outbreaks, and extreme meteorological and geological events.  A few of us may be experiencing #Christian #persecution, with which Paul was very familiar.  He wrote in Philippians that he was prepared to go to his reward or to stay with the Christians.  In either instance, he wanted God to get the glory.  For what did Paul ask his fellow believers?   How much did Paul wish to magnify Christ?  When Christ increases in your life, who or what decreases?  Have you ever seen a legally blind person use a magnifying glass to read what was clear and obvious to others?  How did Paul’s walk with Jesus color his view of life and death?  What do you live for, what makes you come alive?

PSA – Don’t forget #Valentine’sDay is coming up to avoid unnecessary external suffering.  But seriously, why is there so much #suffering in this world?  If suffering is the result of a fallen world, why do Christians suffer?  How does Christian suffering help to spread the Gospel?  What’s wrong with the phrase, ‘under the circumstances’?  Did Paul’s jailing help or hinder the spread of the Gospel?  Where would we be without some of his jailhouse epistles?  How did he view his jailers, as oppressors or opportunities? Is courage contagious just like fear?  What did Paul say about preachers of his day that taught about Jesus plus something else?  Do we have people around us today like that?  How can we rejoice about suffering?
