Today’s message is one that many Christians would rather not think about, let alone admit – suffering is experienced by everyone on earth, believers and non-believers alike. Pastor John doesn’t want you to start today discouraged though – he’s going to explain why God allows suffering, why you’re not immune just because of Salvation, and how you can endure any trial that comes your way! One thing you need to remember upfront is this – God loves you, and He’s for you! Now, let’s join Pastor John in the book of 1 Peter chapter 4 as he begins his message Suffering as a Christian.

Scripture
1 Peter 4:12 - 19

4:12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; 13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. 14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people's matters. 16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter. 17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 Now "If the righteous one is scarcely saved, Where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?" 19 Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.
