Do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God...Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. (2 Timothy 1:8, 2:3)
The call of the good news of Jesus is an invitation to suffer for Jesus.The gospel is that good! This is strange for many of us because we think following Jesus is about reducing our suffering. Perhaps a question we need to think about at the start of this week is this: How are you planning to suffer for Jesus this week?
