Jesus did not come to earth to make things easy for Christians. As followers of Christ, we aren’t promised comfort; we’re promised persecution. But it is our perseverance and endurance through hardship that authenticates our faith. When we patiently endure hardship, we point to Jesus in a profound way. We affirm that we do not fit in, but that we will stay faithful until He takes us home or He returns, because we know He is of more value than the most precious of earthly treasures.
