Why Do Believers Suffer So?

Why do believers suffer so?
So much to understand and know…
If you are reproached for
the name of Christ,
You should be happy
because; although
it hurts to be hated
You will understand and know…
It’s not you but Him
they really hate.
It’s the message and the life
that shows forth Christ
This really is apropos.

Why do believers suffer so?
So much to understand and know…
If you sin then you must
be chastened for it.
You should be happy
because you won’t grow
unless you are His child.
You will understand and know…
that God corrects His child
if you are His.
If you aren’t His then you will
not be disciplined for sin.
You’ll be headed down below.

Why do believers suffer so?
So much to understand and know…
If you suffer then commit
the keeping of your soul to Him
You should be happy
because He will see your woe
and victory will be yours.
You will understand and know…
that God is in control of all
things, even you.
If you suffer not on earth
you won’t even win.
He will not the prize bestow.
