Benefits and Suffering Are Part of the Following Jesus Package

There Are Amazing Benefits in Following Jesus

In selling any product, marketing experts tell businesses to emphasize the benefits, not the process or the details of the product. Most people don’t care exactly how a computer works; they are interested in the benefits.

Promises and Benefits Are God’s Will for Us

God’s promises and benefits are given to those directly connected to and trusting in Jesus.

Suffering Also Included

Along with those amazing benefits, Scripture also tells us that there will also be times of suffering in this age. Jesus said, “In this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

God Wants Us To Learn to Fight Spiritually

That means there is still spiritual warfare taking place. None of us fully understand why God allowed Satan on planet Earth in the first place, but part of it is because God wants us to learn to fight through challenges and defeat evil.
