We must look past this world in order to impact this world.
No matter what position we have in life, our goal as Christians should be to use our position for the glory of God and the salvation of others.
We are never called to rebel against our authority, only to submit and trust God.
When we patiently endure harsh treatment, our faith is on clear display and we give an opportunity for repentance.
Suffering is part of Christian life. We are called to it. We rejoice in it. We'll one day be freed from it.
We should follow the steps of Jesus and be willing to suffer for the sake of others.
