When a person begins to follow Christ, he begins a process of leaving his old life behind. His friends may quickly notice that something has changed. What really gets their attention, though, is his new attitude when the bad times come.
Suffering for a Christ-follower is different than for a person who is not. Handled properly, it can be a witness to friends who have yet to believe in Christ.
In this nineteenth message from the series “Hope for Exiles: The Teachings of First Peter,” Dr. David Rhoades explores how a Christian can move beyond mere suffering to an experience of glorifying God.
