For the next three days I will discuss three aspects of suffering that are often misunderstood, and thus make it difficult for the Christian to endure suffering as instructed in scripture. Romans 5 says this:
 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.  Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance,  and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,  and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. (Romans 5:1-5 ESV)
I will address God’s love, God’s timing, and the Christian Life as they relate to suffering. Please give your feedback, thoughts, criticisms, etc. It is much appreciated.
