On episode 138 of the Adorned Podcast we discuss 1 Peter 4:12-19. Peter is continuing to encourage the church in what it looks like to live a holy life and in this section he is speaking specifically to times of suffering. He is reminding us that because of the brokenness of the world there will be suffering, but as believers we will never have to walk through those seasons alone!
“Keep on rejoicing because your suffering as a Christian is an evidence of your union with Christ.” -John Piper
“God hasn’t promised that His children won’t go into the valley of the shadow of death. He promised that we will never go alone.” -R.C. Sproul
“Believers pass through the testing fire of God’s judgment — not because he hates us, but because he loves us and wills our purity. God hates sin so much and loves his children so much that he will spare us no pain to rid us of what he hates.” John Piper
