OUR PATHWAY TO HOLINESS

Acts 14:22

strengthening the disciples by encouraging them to continue in the faith and by telling them, “It is necessary to go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God.”

Romans 8:17

and if children, also heirs — heirs of God and coheirs with Christ — if indeed we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.

Philippians 1:29

For it has been granted to you on Christ’s behalf not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him,

Suffering for Christ is the pathway to holiness.

THE REASON BEHIND OUR SUFFERING 

I Peter 4:1-6

1 Therefore, since Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same understanding—because the one who suffers in the flesh is finished with sin—

2 in order to live the remaining time in the flesh no longer for human desires, but for God’s will.

3 For there has already been enough time spent in doing what the Gentiles choose to do: carrying on in unrestrained behavior, evil desires, drunkenness, orgies, carousing, and lawless idolatry.

4 They are surprised that you don’t join them in the same flood of wild living—and they slander you.

5 They will give an account to the one who stands ready to judge the living and the dead.

6 For this reason the gospel was also preached to those who are now dead, so that, although they might be judged in the flesh according to human standards, they might live in the spirit according to God’s standards.


Suffering is a regular tool on God’s workbench of sanctification.
