Suffering is not just about the lack of food, good clothing, money, nice house, the lack of education, job and so on. There's a suffering the lord has ordained and called his own into in an order to get the best of himself out of them. The fact that Christians across the globe live in different political and socioeconomic realities, and to a large degree, those realities affects and shape their spiritual orientation and outlook of their faith. In order words, what some many consider as the norm in their part of the world may turn out to be persecution in another region or context
Faith by nature is a powerful movement towards the preferred position of the Spirit. Detaching from what we have learned and experience from our previous walk with God can be highly challenging if our orientation does not change drastically. We need to constantly remind ourselves and the company we belong that faith was never given so that we could merely have things or build a name for ourselves or ministry.
