Suffering and hardship for the sake of Christ build a greater dependence on the Lord within us. It is through these difficulties that we also experience God’s peace and the power to endure by faith. We also gain a deeper insight and understanding into the suffering Christ endured for us through His death on the cross. Paul boasted in his sufferings because of these outcomes which serve to remind us of holding the godly perspective that hardships deepen our relationship with Christ.
2 Corinthians 12:1-10
