Eight Specific Reasons Why Christians Suffer


1. A Lack of Word Knowledge
Many Christians suffer because they're too busy seeking carnal knowledge instead of the Word of God.

2. Disobedience
Once we know the Word of God, we have a responsibility to be obedient to it.

3. To Purify and Test Your Faith
Sometimes trials come simply to test and purify our faith.

4. A Need for Brokenness
God wants us to be totally dependent on Him, and suffering seems to bring us to that point.

5. To Build Compassion
Our pain is never wasted; it brings about compassion that reaches out to other hurting people by saying, "I've been there, and God brought me through it, and He'll do the same for you."

6. To Encourage Others
If we’re to minister to others, we too must face some adverse circumstances.

7. Because of the Word
When someone receives the Word of God, Satan delights in coming immediately to try to steal what’s been sown in their heart.

8. Because of Living in the World
Many times Christians face trials and suffering simply because we live in a world full of sin.
