I Want To Suffer MORE for Jesus Christ.
« on: Sat Feb 17, 2018 - 16:14:01 »
I have suffered every day for the last 33 years; I want to suffer for the Gospel even more.

Romans 5:3-5 King James Version (KJV)3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Interesting!  Could you share more? In what ways have you suffered?  What makes you want to suffer more?

What do you mean by suffered for the gospel, do you mean persecuted for preaching it? Attacked because you are a Christian?  If that is the case then where do you live? That would be unusual for a western country where mostly you just get called a few names or have people be a bit rude to you. Not really what I would call suffering.

through my suffering.

My soul does magnify the Lord,
47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

I would suggest you seek out a more legalistic church.  They will be able to put more burdens on you so that you really feel the pain. They
will have far more things for you to do, and meetings to attend, and good works to do---and pretty soon you'll be totally miserable.  I would
suggest you go that route if you really want to suffer more.

Where do you live that you suffer for the gospel every day? North Korea? China?

That is a good attitude to have when facing suffering...

I am curious; how does your suffering influence how you relate to others?  In what ways are you able to magnify the Lord?

Just never tell another lie
and always speak that to which is in your heart....

And you will suffer that to which
the likes you have never seen.

Great passage there; Philippians has as a central theme joy in suffering.

One of the themes of Philippians is joy in suffering.

Good to focus on the sufferings of Christ in Philippians 2, Isaiah 53, etc.

I was going into the property business, and I brought my first house cash, God will for my life, God  does not want me to go into the property business; I then sold the property I had, given the money to those that need it the most, I could see how much happier it made in people’s lives, and it made me feel happy seeing this.

I have a calling from God; I want to become a priest.
