Read the Bible in a Year This evening read Philippians 1 Suffering Accompanies Believing Read all the words of Paul to the Philippians in 1:29, 30, 29 For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake, 30 having the same conflict which you saw in me and now hear is in me (Phi. 1:29, 30). If we want Christ, we must take everything that comes with Him. We like the idea of believing, and God is happy to grant that to us, but along with that, we make ourselves enemies of the enemies of Christ. Therefore, suffering for Christ accompanies believing in Christ. Do you love Him such that you are willing to go with Him through any situation in life?
