Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 Just as it is written, "For Your sake we are being put to death all day long;
We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities,
Nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing,
Will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Learning through Suffering, by Steve Arterburn
“Complete success alienates a man from his fellows,
but suffering makes kinsmen of us all.”
Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915)
