Unfortunaley many Christians in the West are convinced that being a Christian means living a fairly comfortable life with little suffering. Paul has a different message. Paul tells us that suffering accompanies Christians as we seek to grow in our faith. At the heart of the Christian message is the great juxtaposition that takes place. God uses our weakness to display his strength. Christianity operates best when we recognize our underdog position in the world and embrace it with endurance.
