PALED SUFFERING

 
Roman 8:18


"I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us."NIV


"For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us."KJV


A part of our sharing in Christ's glory throughout eternity is sharing now in the sufferings He endured when He walked on this earth. The good news is, sharing in His glory is so magnificent that our sufferings in this life are insignificant in comparison. We really are blessed and this promise in the Word of God brings us such peace. Remember, the words of this scripture were written at a time when the early Christians were enduring severe persecution. Surely we can endure the sufferings we experience now.


Heavenly Father, how grateful we are that our sufferings will pale in comparison to the glory that awaits us in eternity. Help us to remember these words of comfort when we go through trials and difficult times. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
