Message pain and suffering
I have told you these things, that in me ye might have peace. In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. – John 16:33
Jesus is saying to us that in this life, the faithful, contrary to what many preach around, lift up have tribulation (affliction, Adversity, Pursuit, Disquiet, Labor, Anguish).
You are reminded:
If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, which is why the world hates you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
But all this will do to you because of my name, for they know not him that sent me. – John 15:19
However, Jesus comforts us and guides us to seek Him all the peace necessary for us to with courage, faith and perseverance overcome all problems, even as he also won them.
Amen and thank God. Stay in the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ
