This week we will look at nine possible answers using Scripture to answer the question: Why Do Christians Have to Suffer?
Answer 6. To teach you obedience.
Psalm 119:67,71 “Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word…..It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn Your statutes.”
The painful sting of affliction ought to remind you that sin has consequences. So God uses trials to make you obey and pursue holiness.
Where in your life do you think this is happening today?
What does God want you to do about it?
Be wise today and always – obedience leads to God.
