In the world you will have troubles
( 1 Peter 4 : 12 -13 ; Beloved , think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is in you, as though some strange thing happened unto you. 13. But rejoice , imasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings , that when his glory shall be reveal, ye may be glad also with exceedingly joy. ) In this world you will have tribulations and troubles when you profess Jesus as your personal Saviour . Seem as though you have no friends or family, lots of people will turn their back on you , these are some of the things that the Lord will allow to come upon you . These sufferings are some of the things that will make you strong in him, and he wants you to prove to him that you love him and what you will go through for him. So you see it's for your benefit , then we will know that God really loves us.
