Our Testing Our Suffering

<< 1 Peter 4 >>
12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial among you, which cometh upon you to prove you, as though a strange thing happened unto you:
13 but insomuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings, rejoice; that at the revelation of his glory also ye may rejoice with exceeding joy.

Our war against ourselves is perhaps some of our greatest suffering. Each time we say no to the flesh and yes to the spirit, the spirit becomes a little stronger and the flesh exerts a little less influence. This is our war, this is our spiritual worship, this is our strength. Dying to ourselves everyday and living to Christ is our daily task and cross. It will all be so very worth it in the end.
<< 1 Peter 4 >>
19 Wherefore let them also that suffer according to the will of God commit their souls in well-doing unto a faithful Creator.
