  • Herminia
    Paul understood that believers are the church of God in Jesus Christ. God the Father entrusted the gospel to Paul to strengthen his brothers in faith and love toward one another and to all men. Paul 's glory was their patients and faith during times of persecution and suffering for the sake of the gospel. Jesus chose Paul, and told him how much he would suffer for the sake of the gospel. Those we are born again are chosen by God, and they will also suffer for the sake of the gospel. But we are to counted all joy that we are counted worthy of God 's kingdom. God is righteous, and we will suffer for his goodness. God will bring suffering on them that trouble us.
